Overview of County Level Crash Statistics

This collection of county level data is based upon the county of crash. The data is derived from the Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System (CODES). CODES is a database that matches individual records from the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles Accident Information System to the NYS Department of Health emergency medical services (Pre-Hospital Care Reports) and Hospital Discharge databases. Please be advised that not all information may be available for all counties, as data based on frequencies of less than six are not reported to maintain the confidentiality of the crash victims.
