Transportation

Since its founding in 1998, Econometrica has been involved in complex, high-profile contracts for numerous Federal departments and agencies in the transportation sector, where our research and regulatory support functions have allowed us to develop a deep familiarity with transportation data as well as the entities and systems that generate, manage, and utilize these data.

About Transportation

Econometrica has ongoing and past engagements conducting research and analysis on transportation issues for several offices in the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). This work routinely includes use of the crash datasets (e.g., Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), Crash Reporting Sampling System (CRSS)). Our work in this area has spanned engagements with a variety of agencies.

Our senior economists, senior statisticians, and policy experts have supported the development and analysis of numerous high-profile Federal Government programs and regulations related to transportation safety, homeland security, aerospace, and consumer protection for the U.S. Department of Transportation and other Federal agencies. We have intensively studied and modeled transportation incident and usage data, and we currently maintain the injury, fatality, property, and environmental damage models used by our clients.

Our communications specialists, technical editors, and graphic designers have produced and edited dozens of statistical publications and research reports for numerous Federal agencies. We have also developed webinars, interactive web-based training modules, and other training materials on data and regulations.

Our grant program experts have assisted in the technical and financial oversight of several large DOT grants to U.S. States, territories, and local governments. We have also provided technical assistance to grant applicants and recipients.
