Since 2005, road safety in the U.S. has improved substantially. Of interest in this study was road safety in the individual U.S. states and the District of Columbia, both in terms of the current status and recent changes. The analysis included the use of two primary measures: fatality rate per distance driven, and fatality rate per population. The data for two years were analyzed: 2012 (the latest available year) and 2005.
