The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Carolina Center for Health Informatics and Injury Prevention Research Center recently collaborated with the North Carolina Division of Public Health’s Injury and Violence Prevention Branch to launch the NC Transportation Safety and Public Health Data Dashboard. The dashboard collects crash report data, emergency department data (via NC DETECT), and death certificate data from across North Carolina to provide a comprehensive overview of state and county-level motor vehicle-related crashes, injuries, and fatalities. The dashboard also leverages several interesting subtopics, including child passengers, pedestrians, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as jumping off points to contextualize the impacts of motor vehicle crash-related injuries and raise important questions regarding their prevention.
Whether you are interested in understanding more about crashes in North Carolina, have a specific topic of interest, or just want to look at trends in your county, we hope you find the dashboard a helpful resource!
Note: Funding was provided by the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop this initial version of the dashboard. The NC Transportation Safety and Public Health Data Dashboard is a work in progress; if you encounter any errors or have feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
