Comprehensive Accident Data

JP Research has largely made its name through expert utilization and exhaustive knowledge of the major crash data files in the US. A leader in the area of performing safety and risk analyses using national crash data, JP Research has been breaking new ground, in the US and abroad, through its comprehensive analyses of state-collected and maintained crash data—in particular, of the detailed police reports whose entries form the basis of the national crash databases.
