MAST now includes the entire 2010 STATS19 data, so MAST members can analyse the results in full several weeks before the release of [Reported Road Casualties in Great Britain] for the first time.New Mosaic
MAST is now integrated with ‘New’ [Mosaic Public Sector]; a complete redesign of the Mosaic classification system that seeks to reflect some of the radical changes in British society over recent years. New Mosaic has been designed to more responsive to some of the emerging issues that are reshaping society now and will continue to do so for years to come. For the convenience of our members, MAST will also continue to provide full support the previous Mosaic classification system.New Geographical Detail
In order to provide a greater level of detail about where casualties and drivers come from, as well as where crashes happened, MAST now allows users to view ‘Small Area Geographies’. This means that, for the first time, users can drill down below the local authority level to hone in on specific problem areas. These ‘Small Area Geographies’ are Super Output Areas (SOA) in England and Wales and Intermediate Data Zones (IDZ) in Scotland.New Bespoke Portraits
MAST now comes with bespoke road safety specific portraiture for every New Mosiac Group and Type. We commissioned these from Experian in order to increase the clarity and focus of information now available to MAST users.
Whilst an overview of key features, rankings and regional distribution are retained, other data variables come to the fore. Cars per household, travel to work, experience of speeding traffic and dangerous driving in the community appear alongside the all-important communications preferences and media consumption data; including internet usage.New Dimensions
Indices of Multiple Deprivation
As well as updates to Mosaic and the geographical layers within MAST, another new feature of this update is the addition of driver and casualty indices of multiple deprivation, which will provide a further insight into who is involved in crashes.More Vehicle Details
The Department for Transport has specially supplied MAST with vehicle details such as engine capacity and vehicle propulsion. This information has been derived from the vehicle registration mark and will allow us to add more information (such as vehicle colour and age) in the future.
