Population Crash Rates

EXPLANATION



The charts in the top row represent all crash outcomes from 2007 through 2015, for all of Lane County, by year, normalized by population.  The charts in the second and third rows represent all crash outcomes from 2007 through 2015 for which victim ages were reported.  Hover over the bars to see details.  The charts in the second row display the proportions (or shares) of crash outcomes experienced by each age group. 
Click on an age group in any chart to highlight that same age group in the other charts. The charts in the third row display, for each age group, the ratio between the share of crash outcomes and the share of the overall population. For any given age group, if that ratio is less than 1 (as shown by the dotted vertical line), then that age group experiences fewer fatalities or injuries than would be expected based on their overall share of the total population.  If that ratio is greater than 1, then that age groups experiences more fatalities or injuries than would be expected based on their overall share of the total population.
