Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to present The TSB is publishing selected fields from its Rail Occurrence Database System (RODS) so that this information can be used by industry and the public in order to advance transportation safety. The rail data file allows you to view accidents and incidents that have been reported to the TSB since 1 January 2004. The data provided in the rail data file is described in the accompanying data dictionary. TSB data is collected according to the mandatory occurrence reporting requirements described in the TSB Regulations. On 1 July 2014, the TSB issued new regulations that changed some reporting requirements. Data prior to this date were collected under the reporting requirements described in the TSB Regulations in effect at that time. This rail data file will normally be generated on the 15th of each month. Basic information about each new occurrence in the previous month is available by the date of publication. Further factual information is added when available. As this data is pulled from a live database that captures the results of ongoing investigations, historical data is subject to change, with the oldest data being the most stable. Further, as many occurrences are not investigated formally, information recorded on some occurrences may not have been verified. The scope of what is published will evolve as the TSB gains more experience in publishing this type of data. 2015-07-10 2017-06-20 Transportation Safety Board of Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca TransportRailStatisticsAccidentIncidentCollisionDerailment Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to presentCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/Rail_Eng.csv Rail occurrence data from January 2004 to presentCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/Rail_Fra.csv Data DictionaryCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.csv Data DictionaryCSV http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.csv Data DictionaryHTML http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.asp Data DictionaryHTML http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/fra/stats/rail/csv/dd-20170420.asp

I would like to speak to someone in the administrative unit who produce these data. We are looking for methodological guides, and information about how these data are produced. Sincerely Tracey

Hi Tracey - the Transportation Safety Board has reached out to you via email - hope they are able to get you what you're looking for! Best wishes, Karin -open-ouvert.

Greetings, A student in my class is looking at these data for his/her final paper. I am looking at this dataset and I cannot seem to find methodological information about how these data were collected, submitted, by who, the actual transport authority who compiles these, under which program. I could not find a data author. Can you point me back to the authority who produces these data so that we may access methodological information and the processes by which these data are produced. There is a data dictionary but these are not quite enough to provide context into the strength and limitations of these data, nor about their intended use. Thank you. Please email me -
