Injured Persons by Transportation Mode

$0 / year

The dataset contains information on the injured persons with different modes of transportation in U.S. It contains the number of injured persons on highway, rails, aviation, marine and pipeline. Highway transportation includes passenger cars, light trucks and vans, pedestrians, motorcycles, pedalcycles, medium and heavy trucks, buses and Others. Rail includes freight, passenger, and commuter rail (Trespassing), rail transit.

Transport or transportation is the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles and operations. Transport is important because it enables trade between people, which is essential for the development of civilizations. Transport infrastructure consists of the fixed installations including roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and pipelines and terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehouses, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fueling docks and fuel stations) and seaports. Terminals may be used both for interchange of passengers and cargo and for maintenance. Vehicles traveling on these networks may include automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, trucks, people, helicopters, watercraft, spacecraft and aircraft. Marine includes recreational boating, cargo transport, commercial fishing and commercial passenger. Aviation includes general aviation, airlines and air taxi commuter. Pipeline includes gas and liquids. Compiled and published by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), National Transportation Statistics presents information on the U.S. transportation system, including its physical components, safety record, economic performance, energy use, and environmental impacts.

To reduce double counting, the following adjustments are made to Total Injuries: For railroad, injuries involving motor vehicles at public highway-rail grade crossings are excluded because such fatalities are assumed to be included in highway fatalities. For transit, non-rail modes, including aerial tramway, motor bus, bus rapid transit, commuter bus, demand response, demand taxi, ferryboat, jitney, public, trolleybus, and vanpool injuries are excluded because they are counted as Water and Highway fatalities. Highway numbers including totals are estimates rather than actual counts. The estimates are calculated from data obtained from a nationally representative sample of crashes collected through NHTSA’s General Estimates System (GES). Crash and injury statistics are based on data from the National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) General Estimates System (GES). The NASS GES is a probability based sample of police-reported crashes from 60 locations across the country, from which estimates of national totals for injury and property-damage-only crashes are derived. Estimates are rounded to the nearest 1,000. Estimates less than 500 indicate that the sample size was too small to produce a meaningful estimate and should be rounded to zero. Water injury data for 2001 and before is not comparable with later year due to a change in the reporting system. Current version of this table is not comparable with the versions before 2014 because of the categories changing for some modes. Pipeline incudes serious incidents only.
