(Refresh browser to ensure viewing latest update)
Data collection and analysis are an important part of any highway safety program. In this section you will find a variety of informational documents and links to data sources related to traffic crashes in Oklahoma.
|The Oklahoma Traffic Data Linkage Project (TDLP) is a joint effort between the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) to obtain comprehensive information on traffic crashes by linking data from multiple sources. Through this project, traffic crash reports are linked to hospital inpatient discharge and vital statistics data to better understand motor vehicle crashes and their overall effects.

|The Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) contains data derived from a census of fatal traffic crashes within the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
FARS was conceived, designed, and developed by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 1975 to provide an overall measure of highway safety, to help identify traffic safety problems, to suggest solutions, and to help provide an objective basis to evaluate the effectiveness of motor vehicle safety standards and highway safety programs.
