The Highway Safety Research Institute at the University of Michigan maintains sets of computerized motor vehicle crash information describing traffic accident experience in the state of Texas. These data sets are a valuable asset in the ongoing research efforts at the Institute, and have been used extensively in research studies. This report describes the structure of the data sets, factors affecting the collection of the data, and their ultimate use in research studies in the hope that an understanding of the data will promote an increased awareness of the utility of Police crash data in highway safety research.
