This method has evolved over time and was refined as part of the development of PBCAT.
PBCAT includes the software itself and the User's Manual (FHWA-RD-99-192).
FHWA refined it during development of version 1.0 of PBCAT, which was released in 1999.
PBCAT version 2.0 does all of the same things and more.
The PBCAT 1.0 tool attracted more than 600 registered users in all 50 States and 28 countries.
"But any product can be made better, and PBCAT is no exception," says DVRPC's Madera.
The new version of PBCAT, released in July 2006, significantly improves the product's functionality.
Another change in PBCAT 2.0 relates to the design of the data entry forms.
Although PBCAT has some basic data analysis capabilities, the export feature enables users to perform robust data analyses using more powerful software packages such as Excel, SAS, or SPSS[R].
Users of PBCAT 2.0 have access to detailed descriptions of engineering, educational, and enforcement countermeasures that address specific types of crashes.
By analyzing data from actual crashes, such as where and when they occurred, characteristics of the victims, and the sequence of events leading up to the crashes, the PBCAT software can produce tables and graphs illustrating the relationships among various crash types and other factors associated with the crashes (age, gender, light conditions, etc.).
