Total “A” injuries per 100M VMT

There were 11.6 most severe (“A”)  injuries per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in the urbanized area in 2017 (the most recent year with data available), which is a decrease from 2014 (12.6). The 5-year rolling average of “A” injuries per 100M VMT in the urbanized area has decreased significantly from an average around 17 “A” injuries per 100 million VMT in the previous years to 12.6 in 2014 (2010-2014), and further decreased by 15.6 percent from 2014 to 12.0 in 2017 (2013-2017).

The table and chart below show the rate of “A” injuries per 100M VMT for the urbanized area since 2005. Note that the urbanized area boundary, defined in the U.S. Census, changed in 2010. The change in the urbanized area boundary affects both the area in which total “A” injury numbers were counted, as well as the area in which vehicle miles traveled numbers were counted.
