Data Quality Audit Results

The Non-Motorist Indicator Box was completed in an acceptable manner in 79 percent (33 of 42) of the reports reviewed. Although reports submitted by State Police were only deemed acceptable 50 percent (3 of 6) of the time, the total State Police reports reviewed with a NM indicator was six. This may be due to the fact that non-motorists are rarely found on state roads. Electronic and paper submissions by local police were acceptable 85 (17 of 20) and 81 percent (13 of 16) of the time, respectively. Based on the comments from the auditors, many of the unacceptable reports were due to car occupants or witnesses being recorded in the incorrect field.
