Ohio Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System (CODES) Program

Description of the Ohio CODES Program

The Ohio CODES Program is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It assesses the medical and financial outcomes of motor vehicle crashes in Ohio by linking data from traffic crash reports with various sources of injury data, including emergency medical services (EMS) runs and hospital inpatient and emergency department admissions in Ohio. By linking crash, vehicle and behavior characteristics to specific medical and financial outcomes, potential prevention strategies can be identified to inform highway safety planning and decision-making in Ohio.
