Webinar: Limitations of Drug Fatality Data

posted May 7, 2019, 7:38 AM by Angela Eichelberger

Date/Time: June 13, 2019, 2:00-3:30 p.m., Eastern Time

The webinar will discuss limitations of fatality crash data reporting, specifically regarding drug-involved driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) is often used by others to analyze trends of driving-related behaviors, identify impacts of legislation, and determine effects of programs. However, FARS drug data may have been used to reach conclusions without a thorough understanding of its limitations. Presenters will identify what these limitations are and how to overcome them.
