*Beginning with data for 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) replaced the General Estimates System (GES) with the Crash Report Sampling System (CRSS). Comparisons of 2016 (and later) CRSS estimates with older GES estimates should be performed with caution.
Notes: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) implemented an enhanced methodology for estimating registered vehicles and vehicle miles traveled (VMT) by vehicle type beginning with data from 2007. As a result, involvement rates may differ, and in some cases significantly, from earlier years.  The rates displayed in this table are based on unrounded GES and CRSS data.
