5. Are there any breakdowns you are interested in which are not available in any of the existing dissemination tools?


6. Do you have any suggestions about new breakdowns?


7. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statements regarding the level of timeliness, detail and frequency of the reported road safety statistics?

Timeliness in this context means how early the latest year of data is published, and frequency means how often we publish (annual, mid year, quarterly)

Strongly agreeAgreeNeither agree nor disagreeDisagreeStrongly disagree
The current frequency of annual and mid-year road safety statistics meets my needs
I would be happy for road safety statistics to be published as a dataset with no annual report, if they were more frequent (monthly)
I would find more frequent data, accompanied by an annual report useful

8. With regards to datasets, how likely are the following statements to meet your needs?

Strongly agreeAgreeNeither agree nor disagreeDisagreeStrongly disagree
More frequent, less detailed datasets – this would provide more timely and frequent data but might be less accurate. However a clear explanation of the implication would be provided. This could range from fewer fields made available, less accurate information, or incomplete data.
Annual, more detailed release of datasets – this would provide less timely data but might be a more accurate reflection of trends. This would be like the current format of the reported road safety statistics dataset Great Britain.
