Description

Number of people killed and seriously injured on Scotland's roads. These figures are from the STATS-19 statistical returns collected from the police forces across Scotland. These statistics only focus on those accidents involving killed and seriously injured casualties.

The statistics were compiled from returns made by police forces, which cover all accidents in which a vehicle is involved that occur on roads (including footways) and result in personal injury, if they become known to the police. The vehicle need not be moving, and need not be in collision - for example, the returns include accidents involving people alighting from buses.

Very few, if any, fatal accidents do not become known to the police. However, there will be non-fatal injury accidents which are not reported by the public to the police, and so are not counted in these statistics. The publication Reported Road Casualties Scotland provides more information on this matter.

Damage only accidents are not included in the above definition, and so the road accident statistical returns do not cover damage only accidents. It is thought that the number of damage only accidents is about fourteen times the number of reported injury road accidents.

For more detailed statistics of injury road accidents and a full description of the terms used see the publication Reported Road Casualties Scotland and the Key Reported Road Casualties Scotland statistical bulletin. The figures they contain may differ slightly from those published here due to late returns and amendments made to the database in the periods between the finalisation of the statistics for the purpose of the publications.

Details
Confidentiality Policy

This dataset does not contain any sensitive or personal information.

Quality Management

Details on data sources and methodology are available on the UK web archive.

Accuracy and Reliability

The Road Accident statistics are compiled from returns made by police forces. For each injury road accident known to have occurred in their areas, the police authorities complete a statistical return (named Stats 19), which provides details of the accident circumstances, separate information for each vehicle which was involved in the accident, and separate information for each person who was injured in the accident. Examples of the forms can be found in the Reported Road Casualties Scotland publication.

Coherence and Comparability

Data for Great Britain is available from the Department for Transport.

Comparisons with other countries are available in the Reported Road Casualties Scotland publication.

Accessibility and Clarity

Commentary on road casualties statistics, as well as a calendar of events affecting road traffic and examples of STATS-19 forms are provided in the Reported Road Casualties Scotland publication.

Relevance

These statistics are used by a wide range of interested parties, such as:

  • The Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government (including Transport Scotland)
  • Local authorities
  • Regional Transport Partnerships
  • Police Scotland
  • Other public sector bodies (e.g. Scottish Enterprise and HIE, Cycling Scotland)
  • Transport companies and their representative organisations
  • Students, academics and other researchers
  • Transport consultancies
  • Other bodies with an interest in transport matters, such as the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, the Scottish Transport Studies Group, SUSTRANS, the Institute of Road Safety Officers, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and other bodies concerned with road safety
  • Politicians and members of the public.

They are used for a wide range of purposes including:

  • Informing the general public's choices, e.g. lifestyle choices around road safety
  • Government decision making through policy making and policy monitoring
  • Resource allocation
  • Informing public marketing campaigns e.g. road safety
  • Supporting third sector activity e.g. lobbying and funding applications
  • Facilitating academic research.
Timeliness and Punctuality

Data for a calendar year are extracted in the following September and published in October on the Transport Scotland website. For example, data for 2018 was extracted in September 2019 and published in October 2019. The open data platform is updated as soon as possible thereafter.

Revisions

Data for previous years is revised at each publication to take account of late and amended accidents sent in by the police.
