COMPLETE RESOURCE DOCUMENT




 

The first step in preventing any injury-related problem is understanding the magnitude and scope of the identified issue, where the issue is focused, and whom it affects. This information can be obtained by gathering and analyzing data – through a process known as “surveillance”. Data can show how frequently and in what ways motor vehicle-related injuries occur, reveal any changes in those injuries over time, demonstrate any trends across these injuries, emphasize any risk or protective factors influencing injury-related trends, and highlight the impact of programs that are designed to reduce injuries or fatalities. Data is often used by key decision makers when allocating resources to programs in areas of need. 

 

 

Appendix A provides a list of data sources for the risky driving behaviors highlighted in this resource. This table also contains a list of resources that can be used to define an injury-related problem, plan program activities, develop survey instruments, monitor the effectiveness of programs or policies, evaluate program outcomes or policy impact, and identify additional evidence-based strategies that may not have already been mentioned in this document. This list, organized alphabetically, is not intended to be exhaustive, but serves as a helpful starting point for gathering data.
