New 'Provisional' Dashboard Launched
Following the release of the first half year STATS19 data in November, Road Safety Analysis have been working on a new dashboard to allow local authorities to visualise this information. The new MAST Provisional dashboard will sit alongside the existing MAST Provisional Online tool and offers a quick insight in to the emerging trends in the first half of the year. The dashboard will be updated following the release of the July to September data to include data from the first three quarters of the year.
The ‘Comparisons’ page shows eight gauges for various road user groups including child casualties, pedal cycle user casualties and young driver collision involvement. It shows the percentage change from the first half of the previous year (2014) to the first half of the current year (2015) for the eight indicators.
Also shown on the gauges is the percentage change nationally and regionally. The local authority district in which the collisions occurred can be changed via the drop down box to the top of the screen as can the comparison period.
The comparison period options are, the same period (the first half of the year in this instance) of the previous year, the average over the first half of the most recent five years (2010-2014) and the average over the first half of the five years previous to this (2005-2009).
Clicking on the ‘Charts’ label at the top of the page brings up the charts page. Initially, all available data is shown so all of 2004 to 2014 and the first six months of 2015, however, this can be changed using the ‘quarters’ drop down box to the top right. This is useful if you only want to see the trends for the first two quarters of the year
MAST Provisional Dashboard enables users to quickly gain insight in to the short term and long term trends on an authorities roads and how this compares to the national and regional trends. MAST Provisional Online can be used for more detailed analysis of any trends identified in the dashboard.
