To assist researchers in the traffic safety field, the Transportation Data Center at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) has amassed a significant collection of motor vehicle traffic accident records, as well as other transportation-related data sets, and has made these materials available in a computerized library. The use of this collection is enhanced by a common format and access protocol, by extensive documentation of information elements and their code values, and by a set of integrated computer software for access and preliminary analysis. Following an introduction and presentation of background information, this publication provides a detailed analysis of the Transportation Data Center's system components.
