The CDIP is intended to provide states with a means to measure the quality of the information within their crash database. It is can provide states with metrics to measure where their crash data stands in terms of its timeliness, the accuracy and completeness of the data, the consistency of all reporting agencies reporting the information in the same way, the ability to integrate crash data with other safety databases and how the state makes the crash data accessible to users. Additionally, the CDIP was established to help familiarize the collectors, processors, maintainers and users with the concepts of data quality and how quality data helps to improve safety decisions.
