Community Road Accident Database (CARE) is a Community database on road accidents resulting in death or injury (no statistics on damage - only accidents). CARE has a high level of disaggregation, i.e. it contains detailed data on individual accidents as collected by the Member States.

The purpose of CARE system is to provide a powerful tool which would make it possible to identify and quantify road safety problems throughout the European roads, evaluate the efficiency of road safety measures, determine the relevance of Community actions and facilitate the exchange of experience in this field.

Source / Reference

CARE pulls together non-confidential data from across the EU Member States into one central database. Each year, each country is responsible for producing road safety statistics, which it then submits in the form of a report (including the structure of the data and their own definitions) to the European Commission. The reports exclude confidential information like the precise location of the accident and the brand of car.

CARE has developed a framework of transformation rules from an analysis of the original structure and definitions to ensure the compatibility of data variables and values. In order to harmonise statistics from across the EU Member States, CARE applies the necessary transformation rules to standardise the information. Harmonising the data contained inside the database allows international comparisons and exchange of experiences.
