EVALUATION DATA SYSTEM FOR OFFICE OF ALCOHOL COUNTERMEASURES

This system is designed to collect statistical data concerning alcohol-related highway incidents and Alcohol Safety Action Demonstration Projects. The ASAP Evaluation Data System is a longitudinal data base; it records the same data elements over time. Baseline measures are observations of these data elements obtained prior to program implementation. They are used for comparison with observations obtained during the programs operational period. There are 2 main files-the financial file and the nonfinancial file. Each record in the file represents up to 7 years of quarterly data for 1 cell of a table. There are 2800 records in the financial file and 57,400 records in the nonfinancial file. Data are reported on a quarterly basis, but the submissions are spread uniformaly across the quarter. Retrievals from the file average about 10 per week, and subsets of the file are accessible on-line. Some special reports in this project are: 1. A Computer Archive of ASAP Roadside Breath-Testing Surveys, 1970-1974 (PB242074) by Highway Safety Research Institute, Michigan University, Ann Arbor, (Available from NTIS), Jan 1975. 2. Alcohol Safety Action Projects: Evaluation of Operations, A series of reports evaluating the projects which usually cover one city or county, by NHTSA.(TSC)
