What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the total number of bicycle crashes that occurred in Allen County during the study period 2011 - 2015.  Allen County experienced 112 bicycle crashes, during the study period.  When compared to counties of similar size - 50,000 to 135,000 population - Allen County ranked #1; Miami County ranked #2 with 95 crashes; and Wood County ranked #3 with 92 crashes.  When a standard crash rate, i.e. "crashes per 100,000 population", is applied, the crash rate for Allen County was 105.3 per 100,000 population - compared to Geauga County with 105.1, and  Miami County with a crash rate of 104.3.  

Why this is important?   Numbers of bicycle crashes are indicators of the safety of county and township roads, city streets, as well as state highways.   Examining crash contributing factors allows planners, engineers, law enforcement, as well as emergency responders to identify problems and work to reduce the incidence of these events.

Technical Note:     This is the number of crashes occurring in Allen County during the study period 2011 - 2015 compared to the number of crashes occurring in Ohio counties of similar size - 50,000 to 135,000 in population.
