What is this Indicator?  This indicator depicts the total number of pedestrian crashes that occurred in the Allen County during the study period 2011 - 2015.   Allen County ranked first among Ohio counties of similar size, experiencing 119 such crashes.  Richland County ranked second experiencing 114 pedestrian crashes and Wood County ranked third with 80 pedestrian crashes.   When a standard crash rate, i.e. "crashes per 100,000 population", is applied, Allen County ranked first with a crash rate of 111.9; while, Scioto (99.4) and Erie (97.3) counties ranked second and third respectively.

Why this is important?   Numbers of pedestrian crashes, as are all crashes, indicators of the safety of county and township roads, city streets, as well as state and interstate highways.   Tracking and examining the 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 that occurred in Allen County during 2011 - 2015 study period compared to the number of crashes occurring in Ohio counties of similar size - 50,000 to 135,000.
