Since 1972, NCSA’s Special Crash Investigations (SCI) Program has provided NHTSA with the most in- depth and detailed level of crash investigation data collected by the agency. To fully harness the potential of SCI big-data we are building a digital infrastructure to democratize SCI data science, allowing outside researchers to access existing SCI big-data, contribute their own data, and enable access to user-friendly tools for big-data analytics for knowledge discovery within SCI research.
While SCI’s programs generally target areas that require mass treatment according to World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, the disease burden in SCI areas is on average lower than in the study areas, so our expectation is that the average impact per child treated is lower in SCI areas.
Note: In March 2019, we updated our estimate of SCI’s room for more funding from $16.8 million to $28.7 million as a result of incorporating SCI’s updates to its projections for how much funding it expects to receive from other funders over the next few years.
