National 911 Progress Report released
The National 911 Program recently announced the release of the "
2014 National 911 Progress Report
," which provides detailed reporting and analysis of the most recent collection of 911 statistics from more than 39 states. Available at
, the report collates the data gathered from the participating states with the support of the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA). Because the data are available in both aggregated and state-by-state formats, this is the first data collection effort that allows for the comparison of data to understand how states are similar in terms of call volume, governance and other demographics. This segmented 911 system data will allow state 911 leaders to compare information and consider more effective program modifications based on the models implemented in other states. Also, access to state-by-state information will help answer the questions of legislators and policy makers about how a particular state compares with others. Plans are underway for 2014 data collection to begin in May 2015.
