The accident map shows all road accidents recorded by the police and published in the STATS19 dataset on English local highways authorities between 2005 and 2012.
STATS19 records details of the location, drivers, passengers, vehicles, road type, weather conditions and an initial assessment of the cause of the collision.
Limitations to the data are set out in Reported Road Casualties Great Britain: annual report 2011 (RRCGB).
It is well known that there is a discrepancy between STATS 19 data and that recorded in Hospital Episode Statistics HES and an examination of this is also set out in RRCGB.
