This survey involved contacting key individuals in each State to review with them the status of their State's DWI (driving while intoxicated) tracking system or lack thereof, and to determine various hardware and software applications being used, specific data elements, data models, and any statistical reports or analysis that they might have. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) overall objective of determining the status of DWI tracking systems in each State was to enable it to assess the Nation's ability to make estimates of DWI arrests, convictions, dispositions, sanctions, and sentence completion on both a national and State level. The survey found that ten States presently have DWI tracking systems with computerized data on arrests, dispositions, fines, sanctions, and completion of sentence. Evidence is provided that illustrates the representativeness of these ten States of the United States on both size of licensed driving population and ratio of DWI arrests.
