The Highway Safety Statistics Section maintains the South Carolina traffic collision database and is the core of data analysis within the Office of Highway Safety. The support functions provided by this section serve as the basis for the majority of traffic safety programs in the State. Each year two publications are produced and disseminated throughout the state, the South Carolina Traffic Collision Fact Book and the South Carolina Commercial Motor Vehicle Traffic Collision Fact Book.
The Office of Justice Program's Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) provides South Carolina with a centralized capability of conducting objective analyses to meet critical planning needs and address statewide and system-wide criminal justice policy issues. The SAC also collects common justice system statistical data among the states and shares that data with the Bureau of Justice Statistics, as well as other states. The SAC contributes to statewide policy development by providing statistical services, research, evaluation, and policy analysis.
