Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System (CODES)
The Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System (CODES) is a data partnership between two organizations and three state agencies. Data from the Minnesota Hospital Association, the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board and the Minnesota Departments of Health, Public Safety, and Transportation are probabilistically linked to allow trend analysis of motor vehicle crashes. Some areas of analysis include place of crash, alcohol involvement, and seatbelt use.
In addition to its role in collecting and analyzing crash data, the Injury and Violence Prevention Unit works cooperatively to develop and support crash prevention programs; partners include the Minnesota Safety Council and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
