KEY: N = data do not exist.

NOTES: Please see the National Transportation Statistics table 2-2 for complete source notes and an expanded time-series. To reduce double counting, the following adjustments are made to Total Injuries: For Railroad, injuries involving motor vehicles at public highway-rail grade crossings are excluded because such injuries are assumed to be included in Highway injuries. For Transit, non-rail modes, including aerial tramway, motor bus, bus rapid transit, commuter bus, demand response, demand taxi, ferryboat, jitney, publico, trolleybus, and vanpool fatalities are excluded because they are counted as Water and Highway injuries. Other counts, redundant with above help eliminate double counting in the Total injuries. Water injury data for 2001 and before is not comparable with later year due to a change in the reporting system.
