Introduction

The Washington database incorporated into the HSIS system is derived from the Washington TRIPS system.  The system, maintained by the Transportation Data Office (TDO) of the Washington DOT, is a relational database system which, like Utah, is based on ADABAS computer software.


The Washington TDO provides the data to HSIS in the form of nine different data files. These include:

  • Accident data (including accident, vehicle and occupant data)
  • Basic roadway inventory data
  • Curve/grade/features data
  • Roadway crossings and roadside facilities ("left/right") data
  • Special-use lane information
  • Railroad grade crossing index
  • Traffic data

As originally received, all files except the basic roadway inventory data are "point" files, describing information about specific points (rather than sections) on the roadway.  As will be described below, some of these point-files have been modified to a section-related format for ease of use in the HSIS system.

Raw file data are provided to the Highway Safety Research Center where they are retained as backup information.  The documentation (variable listings, definitions, etc.) for these raw files and for the SAS files that are developed from them are available at FHWA offices.

Beginning in 2004, the HSIS system was converted from a SYBASE relational database to an ORACLE relational database for internal use.    Data files for a given State are linked and manipulated by HSIS staff using SAS code and, as in the past, we have continued to produce SAS format libraries for each of the variables in each of the files.   This Guidebook will concern these SAS files - their formats, completeness, and quality. However, researchers requesting data from HSIS can request the output in various formats such as SAS, Microsoft Excel® and Access®, dBase, ASCII, etc.

As noted above, the SAS accident data are divided into three separate subfiles, the first containing the basic accident information on a case-by-case basis, the second containing information on up to three vehicles in each accident, and the third containing information on up to seven occupants in each of the three possible vehicles.  The vehicle and occupant data can be linked to the basic accident file for a specific case using the accident report number and vehicle number.  The accident subfile can be linked to roadway inventory and traffic files using an 11 character route/milepost variable.   Also a separate pedestrian file is available from 1999 onwards. This file has information on the pedestrians that were involved in a crash. Just as with the vehicle and occupant files, this file can be linked to the accident sub-file using the accident report number.

Unlike the accident file which is referenced to a point on the roadway, each record in the Roadlog File contains information on a homogeneous section of roadway (i.e., a stretch of road which is consistent in terms of certain characteristics, with anew section being defined each time any of the characteristics changes).  Each record on the basic inventory file contains current characteristics of the roadway system and includes such variables as surface width, lane width and type, shoulder width and type, median information and other variables.  As will be noted below, unlike other HSIS state inventories, this file also contains information on the specifics of turn lanes and acceleration lanes.

Data on horizontal curvature and grade have been extracted from an original point-based file and converted in two homogenous section files -- the Curve File and the Grade File.   Each contains information concerning the location (i.e., beginning and ending milepoints) of a specific curve or grade, and descriptive information such as degree of curvature, direction of curve, curve length, percent grade, and grade length.

The Ramp File, a supplemental roadlog file, contains information on the location and roadway characteristics of ramps. This file is available from 2002 onwards. As is the case with other supplemental files, this file is linkable to the accident data.

The Special-Use Lanes File, unique to Washington, contains additional information on special auxiliary lanes or on usage of the paved shoulder as special lanes.  For example, this file contains information on the presence of bike lanes, the presence of two-way turn lanes in the median, and the presence of auxiliary climbing lanes.

The Features File is a supplemental roadway inventory file which contains limited information on bridges, tunnels, and underpasses.  These are point data, with location and limited descriptive information given for each point on the file.  The bridge data have been formatted such that they are linkable with the National Bridge Index (NBI) file available from FHWA.

The Left/Right File is another unique file to Washington which contains descriptive information on crossing roadways and milepost markers, and the locations of roadside facilities such as park and ride lots, rest areas, and truck weight stations.

While the Railroad Grade Crossing Index does not contain detailed information on the railroad crossing, it does contain information which will allow one to link this file with the federally- required railroad grade crossing file.

 

DETAILS OF MAJOR FILES

The Accident Files

Accident data is collected statewide by all police departments in the state on a standard form. The prescribed accident reporting threshold is currently $750 or personal injury. Prior to 1 January 2000, this used to be $500 or personal injury. It is felt that this threshold is generally used for accidents that occur on state system roads in most of the rural areas. It is the feeling of the TDO staff that city police in Tacoma and Seattle, two of the larger cities, may have begun to report fewer non- injury crashes than the official threshold would require, using something like a tow-away criteria.

There are approximately 40,000 accidents in the entire state each year. For each crash that is investigated, an accident report form is sent to the Washington State Patrol (WSP) Accident Reports Division, which is the central repository of the data. The WSP then separates the forms into those occurring on state routes and those on non-state routes, and sends the state- route hard copies to the Transportation Data Office (TDO) for location coding. The location coding is done by coding staff using logs showing virtually every possible reference point beside the roadway, including bridges, businesses, intersections, and a number of other references. The crash location is coded based on location-related information provided by the investigating officer on the form and on his/her reference map/sketch. In addition to the standard coding done by other states, all accidents which occur on interchange ramps are located to the specific interchange ramp on which they occur.

Each unit of the Washington State Patrol has been given a copy of the accident locator log to provide them with listings of possible reference points. In addition, physical reference markers are installed on Interstates and other state routes in both urban and rural locations. While some may be missing in urban areas, the rural state systems seem to be intact. TDO staff estimate that there are problems in location provided by the officers in only one to two percent of the accidents that the staff codes. These are sent back to the police officers for correction.

Because of the above-noted locating and coding procedures, it is felt that the location coding for these state-route accidents is probably as accurate as would be found in any state in the U.S., with over 95% of the rural accidents being located to at least the nearest 1/10 of a mile, and over 95% of the urban accidents being located within 100 feet.

After location coding by the TDO staff, the hard copies are sent back to the Washington State Patrol for coding of all other variables. Once keypunched and entered into the computer by the State Patrol, the complete computer file is sent back to the TDO office for their use. Approximately 15 to 20 percent of the crashes in the location-coded file are reported by citizens using a "citizen reports." This is a higher proportion of citizen-reported crashes than in other states. Because of the size of this sample, these reports are location coded by Washington staff, and are used in calculation of rates and in identification of high-accident sites. The form used by citizens is designed to eliminate some of the possible self-reporting biases by deleting some of the items found on the normal police report. However, because of the possible remaining biases, and in order to be consistent with the other state databases, these citizen reports have been deleted from the Washington HSIS file. Deleting these reports results an HSIS file of approximately 42,000 accidents. The corresponding number of accidents in HSIS in its first year - 1993 - was about 34,000.

Currently the HSIS system contains accident data for 1993 to 1996 and 1999 onwards. The 1997 and 1998 accident data were not included by WADOT in the TRIPS system due to budget restrictions and problem encountered in year 2000 conversion efforts. Thus, these data are also not present in HSIS.

The Accident Subfile contains over 69 variables and approximately 42,000 crash records, and includes all basic variables that would be expected on standard police forms. The file provides a "first harmful event" variable but does not provide a "most harmful event." However, since 1993, the accident file has contained information on the sequence of events. This information includes the movements prior to the impact for up to two vehicles (e.g., "moving straight," "turning right"), and the specific type of the impact (e.g., "strikes other vehicle head on," "strikes appurtenance"). In addition, the accident file contains a variable concerning whether or not one or more vehicles was towed from the scene, which will allow analysis based on "towaway" vehicles in addition to standard analysis which include all vehicles meeting the dollar damage threshold, whether towed or not.

Also, the accident file contains a variable indicating the presence of a work zone at the crash location from 1999 onwards.

The Vehicle Subfile, containing approximately 78,000 vehicles each year, contains information on up to three vehicles in the crash. It contains specific information on the driver (including ejection information) as well as information on vehicle make/model, movements related to crash, miscellaneous actions, crash circumstances and causes. VIN data is not found on the TRIPS file available to HSIS. Crash-involved pedestrian information on such items as pedestrian age, sex, injury status, actions prior to the crash, sobriety, and crash circumstances is also included in the Vehicle Subfile up to 1996. From 1999 onwards, a separate pedestrian file has been developed that included information on all pedestrian related items.

Due to budget restrictions and conversions to post-2000 formatting, Washington stopped collecting some vehicle and occupant variables during the 1999-2001 period. Hence, some of the variables in the vehicle and occupant files are either missing or have limited coding, and the coding varies by year. Relevant notes under specific variables in the format section of the guidebook identify these variables. For these variables, the end-user is advised to examine the frequency distributions across years to determine the extent of missing values and the consistency of coding before using them in any analysis.

The Occupant Subfile contains information on up to seven occupants (including the driver) for any of the three vehicles, resulting in a file of approximately 700,000 entries each year. It contains information on occupant's sex, age, seating position, injury class, restraint use, and ejection. For 1999 and later years, this file does not contain information on the driver and the total number of observations in the file are about 20,000. The driver information continues to be captured in the Vehicle Subfile for all years.

Finally, as noted above, some Occupant Subfile variables are missing or inconsistent for the 1999-2001 period. Pertinent notes are included in the format section.

The Pedestrian Subfile, available from 1999 onwards contains information on pedestrians involved in a crash - approximately 1,200 entries per year. It contains information on various pedestrian characteristics like age, clothing, sex, injury, contributing circumstances, etc. Previously, these variables were available in the vehicle sub-file.

In order to assess the accuracy of accident variables, we both questioned the TDO staff concerning their feelings of variables that were incompletely coded or might be inaccurate and examined a series of single variable tables for 80 key variables. The TDO staff indicated that the truck-type codes in "vehicle type" variable are in error in some cases. In addition, there is no information on the crash report form concerning whether or not hazardous materials were spilled. It is noted that Washington may move toward capturing better truck information through incorporation of NGA accident data elements in the future. Second, the staff feel that the "road character" variable in the accident file, which include information such as "straight and level," "curve and grade", etc. is a poor variable. Also, while information is provided on the report form (and in two variables) concerning whether an accident occurred in a construction zone, the staff feels that there are some problems in accuracy because of work zone definition and interpretation problems. (Based on a recent HSIS staff analysis of work zone accident data in other HSIS and non-HSIS states, this problem is common across almost all states.) All other variables were felt to be accurate. Finally, as noted above some vehicle and occupant related variables are not coded or coded inconsistently from 1999 to 2001 and a series of computerized quality control checks conducted by HSIS staff each time a new annual set of files is received from Washington. These checks compare the new year data to that of the preceding year and screen for changes in file frequencies (e.g., total crashes, total vehicles), percent of "unknowns" or blanks and changes in coding distributions for each variable in each subfile (e.g., changes in driver gender or crash type distributions between years). When problems are found, HSIS staff works with the State staff to correct them, and where needed, additional information was added below that variable in the later format sections of this Guidebook.

In addition to information received from the TDO staff, single variable tabulations were run to examine the questions of reporting completeness and data accuracy for accident, vehicle, and occupant variables. Here study of the percent of "unknown," "not applicable," and "not stated" values for over 80 key variables found in these files indicate that, in general, the data is coded to a high degree of completeness. The data also appear to be quite consistent across years, and similar variables appear to have similar values.

In general, from the interviews and the data comparisons conducted, the data appear quite accurate. In the limited number of cases where possible inaccuracies were found, they are noted under the specific variables.

The Roadway Inventory Files

As noted above, using the multiple files provided by Washington from their TRIPS system (Transportation Information and Planning Support System), a series of roadway inventory files which contain current characteristics of the state road system have been developed for the HSIS. There is a basic Roadlog File containing information on such things as lane and shoulder width and type; two supplemental files on horizontal and vertical alignment; a supplemental Roadway Features file containing information on bridges, tunnels, underpasses and other features; a Left/Right file containing information on crossing roadways, milepost markers, and roadside features such as rest areas and weigh stations; and a supplemental Special-Use Lanes File which contains information on bike lanes, climbing lanes, etc.

The Roadlog, Curve, Grade and Ramp Files are "section" files, with each homogeneous roadway section being defined by a beginning and ending milepost. The remaining files are "point data" files describing characteristics at a given milepost. However, some variables in these "point" files include information on the length of a given feature from that point (e.g., the length of a bike lane from the milepost provided). Each of these files is described in the following narrative.

The basic inventory file and supplemental files which are part of the TRIPS were developed in the past based on inventory information collected through a series of field surveys. Prior to 1986, a field survey covering half of the state was conducted each year to verify the information on the file. Due to lack of funds, this process ended after 1986. However, an update to the file is now done on a routine basis by the TDO inventory staff based on new construction drawings. In addition, whenever a major construction or reconstruction project is completed, a manual physical inventory is conducted as a check of the final "as built" construction plans. The only updates that would be missed by the TDO staff are maintenance operations done at the district level. Districts are allowed to do maintenance projects on the roadway for projects which cost up to $30,000. Even for these projects, when it becomes apparent to the central office staff that certain things have been done in the district but have not been reported to them, they request the information from the district. The fact that they do not get systematic reports of these maintenance activities from the district leads the TDO staff to believe that they are missing some data on approximately 10-15 percent of the roadways. However, they feel that the data on 85-90 percent of the inventory system is quite complete and quite accurate.

The HSIS files, developed from files in TRIPS, contain information on approximately 7,200 miles of mainline (non-ramp) roadway and approximately 1000 additional miles of ramp, frontage road, and other non-mainline roadway. This includes all functional classes of roads within the state system -- Interstate, U.S. and state routes. (Note that there are no county- or municipal-owned roads in the file.) Currently, inventory data is available for 1993 to 1996 and from 2002 onwards. Data for intermediate years is unavailable because Washington stopped creating electronic files for those years due to budget restrictions. However, HSIS has AADT files for 1998-2000. While the beginning and end-points of these AADT records differ from the segments in the 1996 and 2002 roadlog file, HSIS staff will work with users in matching these data to the roadlog sections for either or both of those years. Unlike other states, many of the variables in all of the roadway inventory files contain not only a description of the item, but also information concerning the date that the item was last modified. This should allow "before/after" analyses related to the specific roadway changes. Because a new record is generated each time any of the items on a file changes, the sections that are generated are fairly short, resulting in a large number of individual records on the file. For example, the 8,000 miles of basic inventory information is divided into 46,000 records, resulting in an average section length of two tenths of a mile.

Table 1 presents mileage breakdowns for all paved, two-way, mainline roadways (i.e., omitting all unpaved and one-way roadways). As expected since it is a state-controlled system, the file is predominantly rural in nature, with close to 80% of the roadways being in rural areas.

The Roadlog File

The basic roadway inventory file for Washington in the HSIS is the Roadlog File. As noted above, this file contains information on a homogeneous section of roadway (i.e., a stretch of road which is consistent in terms of certain characteristics, with a new section being defined each time any of the characteristics changes). Each record on the basic inventory file contains current characteristics of the roadway system and includes over 100 different variables, plus date-of-change variables for many of them. Variables include information on surface width, lane width and type, shoulder width and type, median information, rural/urban codes, terrain codes, and various roadway type descriptors including functional class. Unlike other HSIS state inventories, this file also contains some information on the specifics of turn lanes and acceleration lanes, such as width and length. It should be noted that, like turn lanes, the "acceleration lanes" being described here are related to at-grade intersections which occur at the beginning of a segment, rather than to grade- separated interchanges. Even though included in this section-based file, this acceleration- and turn- lane information is of a "point" nature, in that it is attached to the milepost of the related intersection, which is at the beginning of the section. (Thus, the milepost for the beginning of the acceleration lane will not begin a new section.) The same is true for additional variables related to intersection lighting and traffic control (for the mainline). It is also noted that there may be other intersections within a section that are not noted on this file. Thus, while a new section will begin at some (but not all) intersections with acceleration and/or turn lanes, a new section will not necessarily begin at other intersections. To obtain information on the number of intersections within a given section, one would link this file with the "Left/Right File" described later. Finally, to facilitate analyses, variables related to Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) and Legal Speed Limit (SPD_LIMT) were extracted from other files and merged into the Roadlog File.

As with the accident files, Washington TDO staff were questioned concerning the completeness and accuracy of the variables on the Roadlog File. As noted above, there feeling is that the data are very accurate for between 85-90 percent of the inventoried system. In addition, a series of single variable tabulations for 48 key variables were reviewed. These runs indicated that almost all of the variables have less than five percent of the data uncoded. Where variables should be somewhat consistent (e.g., miles of median type and median width), they are. In summary, the data appear to have a high overall degree of completeness and consistency.

Two new variables, RODWYCLS and MVMT, have been created by HSIS staff in the roadway segment file of each of the HSIS states. The RODWYCLS (Roadway Class) variable is based on the combination of rural/urban, access control, number of lanes and median type variables. This variable classifies each roadway segment into one of ten roadway types described in the later "Format" section. This variable is also included as an accident-file variable by matching each crash to its corresponding roadway segment. The MVMT variable (Million Vehicle Miles of Travel) is calculated for each segment in the roadway file by multiplying the segment length, AADT and 365 days in a year, and dividing by one million. Both these variables were created in response to inquire from data users, whose most frequent questions have concerned either crash frequencies or rates (per MVMT) for one or more of these roadway classes.

The Curve File and the Grade File

Initially, data on horizontal curvature and grade were captured in the roadway features inventory as point data, along with information on bridges, tunnels, underpasses and changes in speed limit. For ease of use and consistency with other HSIS states, two separate section-based files have now been developed -- a Curve File and a Grade File. In each case, a new section begins whenever there is a horizontal curve (in the first file) or a change in grade (in the second file.) For use in specific analyses, these files can be merged with the Roadlog File, the Accident File, or with each other using the beginning and ending milepoint variables and the "Road Inventoried" variable.

The Curve File contains information on approximately 16,200 curves. It includes variables related to angle, direction, degree (and radius), length, maximum super-elevation (for a very limited number of curves), legal speed limit, the date of last change to the curve, and whether the curve overlaps with a preceding curve. The latter would occur due to slight errors in ending milepoints resulting from the use of curve length in the calculation of this milepoint. This occurs in less than one percent of the cases. Note that when the curve file is merged with the Roadlog File to put curvature variables on the roadway sections, 70 to 80 percent of the roadway sections will show missing degree of curve and other variables. These "missing sections" actually denote tangent sections where the degree of curve is zero. This should be anticipated and handled by the analyst.

The Grade File contains approximately 34,200 records. In addition to beginning and ending milepoint, the Grade File contains information on the percent grade, direction ("+" or "-"), and length. In addition, the file contains information concerning "Grade Type," which denotes whether the downstream end of the grade is an angle point (i.e., a minor change in grade without a vertical curve) or is connected to the succeeding grade with a vertical curve.

Both curvature and grade information was originally developed from construction drawings and straight-line diagrams. It is updated yearly through review of new construction plans. As with the basic roadway inventory information, Washington TDO staff feels that the data are accurate for approximately 85-90 percent of the inventoried mileage on the TRIPS.

The Ramp File

Ramp file, describing the roadway characteristics on ramps is created from the basic roadlog file. There is information on about 12,300 ramps in the ramp file. This file is available from 1993 to 1996 and then again from 2002 onwards. Each ramp has a beginning and ending mile point, and accidents can be linked to the ramp. (Indeed, accidents occurring at the end of a diamond- interchange ramp are located to the end of the ramp rather than to the crossing roadway, giving a clearer picture of ramp-related crashes.) While there is no information on the degree of curve for the ramp, there is information on surface type and width, shoulder type and width, number of lanes and location descriptors (e.g., urban/rural). Also traffic volumes are available only on a limited number of ramps. While there is no variable which will allow one to group the ramps for a given interchange, schematic drawings of each interchange in the state are available at the HSIS offices at FHWA.

The Special-Use Lanes File

In contrast to other states, Washington also provided to HSIS a file containing additional information on approximately 4,600 special auxiliary lanes. The file contains information on the type of special-use lane (e.g., bike lanes, two-way turn lanes in the median, auxiliary climbing lanes), the side of the roadway where the lanes are located, and the length, width and surface-type associated with the lanes. Where data are provided, accuracy is expected to be similar to that in the other inventory files.

The Features File

This file contains supplemental information on bridges, tunnels, and overpasses. (Speed limit data which was originally in this file have been merged into the Roadlog File.) A new record appears anytime one of these features occurs on the roadway, resulting in approximately 6,000 records. These are point data, with a location and limited descriptive information given for each point on the file. The original TRIPS file also contained the curvature and grade information which was used to build the preceding two HSIS files. While "unique" curve and grade records were eliminated from this Features File, all remaining records still contain all information on curvature and grade. Thus, it is possible to determine whether a bridge or tunnel are located on a curve (or grade), and if so, the specifics of that curve/grade. It is noted, however, that there will be multiple records for the same bridge, tunnel, or overpass, since there will be a record for both the beginning and ending milepoint, and possible additional records if any of the other variables change between these end points (such as a change in grade). As noted earlier, information on the speed limit changes has been merged into the Roadlog File.

In general, except for curve/grade and speed limit information, the file provides little or no additional descriptive information. There is information on whether a feature is lighted or not. However, it is noted that the bridge data have been formatted such that they are linkable with the National Bridge Index (NBI) file available from FHWA, a file which contains a wealth of descriptive information.

The Left/Right File

This file contains information on crossings, milepost markers, and various types of facilities found on the left and right sides of the mainline. Of the 51,400 records in the file, the overwhelming majority are related to crossing routes and milepost markers. Milepost marker information is primarily related to the location of the marker. The 25,500 records related to crossing routes contains information on the location of the crossing on the main route, the type of crossing (e.g., intersection, ramp entry/exit), and a brief narrative descriptive of the crossing route (e.g., name or number of street or route). Unfortunately, the file does not contain the related milepost on the crossing route, and thus cannot be linked with inventory data related to that route. The remainder of records on the file is related to various types of facilities including transit ("flyer") stops, park and ride lots, rest areas, truck weight stations, toll booths, ferry terminals, and state border crossing facilities. A new record is created for each point (milepost) where one or more of these facilities exist. In addition to the milepost information, the file contains descriptive information, facility owner, and date of last change for each facility. The samples of these facilities are, as expected, limited. For example, there are approximately 100 rest area and weight station records, and approximately 50 records concerning transit stops. The accuracy of the data in the file is considered quite good.

The Railroad Grade Crossing Index

This file contains information for each milepost where a railroad crosses a state route. The file contains only limited descriptive data (e.g., whether the crossing is at-grade or on a structure). However, it does contain detailed location data, linkage variables and information which will allow one to link this file with the federally-required railroad grade crossing file. The latter file is available at FHWA, and contains a large variety of information on each crossing.

Traffic Information

As noted above, traffic count data captured on the TRIPS file contain a number of variables including AADT, single-trailer truck percentage, double-trailer truck percentage, and various peak- hour descriptive percentages. For WA data up to 2004, HSIS staff merged the variables related to AADT and truck percentages into the Roadlog file. The merging method used was based on information received from the WADOT traffic staff during the 1990's. The basic assumption followed at that time was that a new traffic record began when there was change in the AADT. At that point, it appeared that the traffic census staff was identifying "discontinuities" along the routes in terms of volumes - locations where the staff expected there to be significant changes in the AADT, such as intersection with a significant turning volume, or a location of a major traffic generator such as a shopping mall exit. This resulted in a file of what might be considered "homogeneous traffic sections." Until 2004, the HSIS staff used this information to apply AADTs and truck percentages to each roadway segment in the Roadlog file. However, new information was received from WADOT staff in 2004 indicating that the AADTs on the traffic file sent to HSIS are simply coded to the nearest roadway feature to which the count was conducted. This means that "homogeneous AADT sections" are not actually being defined. Beginning in 2004, WADOT began assigning AADTs to roadway segments based on a more refined procedure that takes into consideration various roadway features such as presence of an interchange and intersection, presence of a couplet, presence of a jurisdiction boundary, and other factors to assign the AADT to the roadway segments. From 2004 onwards, the roadway segments in the WA HSIS roadway file contain this WADOT-assigned AADT data. Note that this will result in some discrepancies between AADT counts for 2004 and prior years for the same roadway segment. (WADOT staff did not correct historic AADTs.) HSIS staff is working to minimize these differences by revising the AADT-to- segment linkage algorithm for these pre-2004 data. However, it will not be possible to exactly match the new methodology, so differences will exist.

For both pre- and post-2004 years, the basis for the traffic information is a series of permanent and non-permanent count stations across the state. While the number has changed over the life of the HSIS files, there are 163 permanent Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATR's) in the state as of July 2013. These 163 Permanent Traffic recorder (PTR) sites are comprised of 107 Permanent Traffic Recorder (PTR) sites, 37 weigh-in-Motion (WIM) sites, 18 Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP)/Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) sites and 1 volume recorder.

The goal of the count program is to have timely count data (i.e., counted within the last four years) for approximately 3,900 mainline locations and 2,600 ancillary locations (e.g., ramps, frontage roads, overcrossings). This is done in a three-year count cycle. To meet this goal, the traffic census staff conducts approximately 2,300 tube counts and computes an additional 200 ramp balanced estimates each year (some being repeated at the same location multiple times in the same year). In general, the tube counts capture 72 hours of midweek (Tuesday through Thursday) data. Of these tube counts, approximately 770 per year capture vehicle classification information. For some locations where the required classification data can't be captured with tubes, a 12-hour manual count is performed and statistically expanded to a 24-hour period. The counts are not always taken at the exact same locations, but do cover all 3,200 HPMS locations as well as certain project counts for projects that are conducted each year.

With respect to accuracy and completeness, the TDO staff feels that they have very good data on approximately 90 to 95 percent of the roadway in the trips system. They feel that the least accurate information on the file is vehicle classification data (e.g., truck percentages). This is because classification information is often annualized in a much less accurate fashion than total vehicle volume. In addition, vehicle classification data is much less complete, since roadway characteristics often preclude setting short-duration mechanical traffic counters to classify.

As noted under specific variable descriptions in the later format section, certain other variables (such as "Peak Hour Percentage" and "Peak Hour Split") have significant numbers of uncoded ("zero") locations.  These represent locations where counts were not made or where old, erroneous counts have been deleted from the file.

 

Issues Related to Developing and Merging Files

As noted above, the accident data are subdivided into three subfiles -- accident, vehicle and occupant. These subfiles can be linked together using the "case number" variable which includes the accident year (i.e., CASENO) present in each of the three files. When linking the occupant subfile, the additional linking variable "vehicle number" (i.e., VEHNO) must match so that the occupants are associated with the vehicle in which they were traveling. To link the Vehicle subfile with the Accident alone, first sort both subfiles by case number. To link the Occupant file with the other two subfiles, first sort both the Vehicle subfile and Occupant subfile by case number and vehicle position number. Next sort the Accident subfile by case number. Alternatively, the separate subfiles can be linked by specifying an SQL JOIN operation with the constraining condition that case number and vehicle number from each table are equal. SQL processing does not require the data to be presorted and the output will not be in any particular sort order unless ORDER BY is specified.

The Accident subfile can then be linked with the Roadlog File using information related to county, route number, and milepost on the route. The actual linkage variables on the Accident file which are used in the merging operation are RD_INV and MILEPOST. The linkage variables on the Roadlog File are BEGMP, ENDMP and ROAD_INV. (Note that in merging the Accident or Roadlog file with other files, the merging variables are the same two milepost variables, and either RD_INV or some variation of the latter variable always ending in "_INV." For example, on the Facilities File, the latter variable is LR_INV.)

To prepare the Accident subfile for linking with the Roadlog File using a SAS data step process, the analyst must sort both the Accident and the Roadway File into location order by RD_INV and MILEPOST on the Accident file and by ROAD_INV and BEGMP on the Roadlog File. Similar sorts would be done with other files to be merged. For the alternative SQL join, the analyst must specify an exact match on RD_INV with ROAD_INV, and a range match where MILEPOST occurs between BEGMP and ENDMP. (Programs to accomplish this merging and division are documented in the HSIS Programmer's Guidebook, available at FHWA.)

Finally, where appropriate and possible, a format which defines categories within a given variable has been developed for HSIS SAS variables. These categories are shown in the pages below. These formats have been saved in a format library which can be provided to the user. As a naming convention, the "format name" is the same as the variable name, with the only exception being for certain character variables (in contrast with numeric variables). More specifically, a SAS format name has to be preceded by a "$" if the variable is character in nature.

Definition: SRMP ahead and back indicator where crash occurred.


Date Accident Occurred
SAS Name: ACC_DATE

Definition: Date when the accident occurred.

Additional Information: Element discontinued in 1999. Can be created using the DAYMTH and MONTH variables below.

 


Accident Type
SAS Name: ACCTYPE

Definition: Type of accident that occurred.

Additional Information:Because this element was developed by WA DOT staff using vehicle maneuvers, each basic crash type (e.g., head-on, rear-end) has both a "strikes other vehicle" and a "struck by other vehicle" component. See code pairs 01 and 11, 02 and 12, etc. The user must combine both components to define the total number of a given crash type. Frequencies for categories 02, 03, 04, 05, 14, 15 look different between pre-1999 and post-1999 periods. However, these categories are similar in definition and we believe that the inconsistencies are because of this similarity and not due to any data quality issues

Notes

1. SAS element names and longer explanatory names are shown above each listing. (See Discussion for information on SAS formats.)
2. For all SAS-formatted elements below, an extra category labeled as "ERROR CODES" consolidates all values not listed as legitimate codes. This category is printed when elements are listed in tables.
3. No Roadlog files were received from Washington for 1997-2001. The formats described below pertain to 1993-1996 and 2002 onward years.


Average Annual Daily Traffic
SAS Name: AADT

Definition: Average annual daily traffic.

Additional Information: AADT in 2004 and later files were defined using a new methodology. This will result in some discrepancies between AADT counts for 2004 and prior years for the same roadway segment. See Discussion.

  • 0 ='0'
  • 1-100 ='1 - 100'
  • 101-500 ='101 - 500'
  • 501-1000 ='501 - 1,000'
  • 1001-2000 ='1,001 - 2,000'
  • 2001-5000 ='2,001 - 5,000'
  • 5001-10000 ='5,001 - 10,000'
  • 10001-15000 ='10,000 - 15,000'
  • 15001-20000 ='15,001 - 20,000'
  • 20001-40000 ='20,001 - 40,000'
  • 40001-999999 ='40,000 +'

Access Control Date
SAS Name: ACCES_DT

Definition: Date of last change in access control for this segment (YYYYMMDD).


Access Control Type
SAS Name: ACCESS

Definition: Type of access control

Additional Information: Approximately 15% of the sections are uncoded. However, the majority of the uncoded sections are non-mainline roadway types (e.g., ramps) as shown under RD_TYPE. It is also noted that this element is, to some extent, a "planning" element. This results in approximately 900 miles of two-lane roads with full access control - sections, which will ultimately be upgraded to multilane freeway.

  • 'F' ='Limited Access Fully Controlled'
  • 'P' ='Limited Access Partially Controlled'
  • 'M' ='Limited Access Modified'
  • '1' ='Controlled Access Most Restrictive'
  • '2','3','4' ='Controlled Access Less Restrictive'
  • '5' ='Controlled Access Least Restrictive'

Left Accel Lane Date Road 1
Left Accel Lane Date Road 2
SAS Name: ACLL_DT1
SAS Name: ACLL_DT2

Definition: Date of last change in left acceleration lane information (YYYYMMDD).


Left Accel Lane Length Road 1
Left Accel Lane Length Road 2
SAS Name: ACLL_LG1
SAS Name: ACLL_LG2

Definition: Left acceleration lane length

Additional Information: Acceleration lanes and Turn lanes are associated with at- grade intersections (at the beginning of the section) rather than interchanges. Interchange acceleration, deceleration, and merging areas are included as part of ramp lengths.


Left Accel Lane Width Road 1
Left Accel Lane Width Road 2
SAS Name: ACLL_WD1
SAS Name: ACLL_WD2

Definition: Left acceleration lane width

Additional Information: Acceleration lanes and Turn lanes are associated with at- grade intersections (at the beginning of the section) rather than interchanges. Interchange acceleration, deceleration, and merging areas are included as part of ramp lengths.


Right Accel Lane Date Road 1
Right Accel Lane Date Road 2
SAS Name: ACLR_DT1
SAS Name: ACLR_DT2

Definition: Date of last change in right acceleration lane information (YYYYMMDD).


Right Accel Lane Length Road 1
Right Accel Lane Length Road 2
SAS Name: ACLR_LG1
SAS Name: ACLR_LG2

Definition: Right acceleration lane length

Additional Information: Acceleration lanes and Turn lanes are associated with at- grade intersections (at the beginning of the section) rather than interchanges. Interchange acceleration, deceleration, and merging areas are included as part of ramp lengths.


Right Accel Lane Width Road 1
Right Accel Lane Width Road 2
SAS Name: ACLR_WD1
SAS Name: ACLR_WD2

Definition: Right acceleration lane width

Additional Information: Acceleration lanes and Turn lanes are associated with at- grade intersections (at the beginning of the section) rather than interchanges. Interchange acceleration, deceleration, and merging areas are included as part of ramp lengths.
