Traffic Safety Facts 2016 Data: Older Population

This fact sheet contains information on fatal motor vehicle crashes and fatalities, based on data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). FARS is a census of fatal crashes in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico is not included in U.S. totals). Injury estimates for 2016 were not available at the time of publication, thus no injury estimates will be presented. For more information about injury estimates, read Crash Report Sampling System (CRSS) Replaces the National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) General Estimates System (GES) at the end of this publication. For the purposes of this fact sheet, the term “older”—in relation to population, drivers, occupants, and nonoccupants—refers to people 65 and older. In this fact sheet the 2016 older population information is presented in the following order: Overview; Older Drivers; Older Population Age Groups; Older Pedestrians; Driver Involvement in Fatal Crashes by State and Age Group; Fatalities by State and Age Group.
