This manual provides a data dictionary for the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) General Estimates System (GES) databases. Providing data about fatal and all other types of crashes involving all types of vehicles, both FARS and the NASS GES are used to identify highway safety problem areas, provide a basis for regulatory and consumer information initiatives, and form the basis for cost and benefit analyses of highway safety initiatives. The manual lists the codes used for the data elements in FARS and the NASS GES. It presents the coding forms and instructions on how to code the data elements at the crash level, vehicle level, driver level, precrash level and person level. It also provides the changes to the 2012 manual, and a list of data elements and database location codes.
