Analysis of accident databases quantifies the field performance of vehicles, vehicle components, and other industrial or consumer products to measure product risk in the context of similar products used in real world environments. For example, DRE performs risk analyses related to motor vehicle accident and occupant injury performance, comparing specific vehicles to peer vehicles, a class of vehicles, or all vehicles.

DRE's in-house data warehouse includes many large-scale federal and state databases. DRE can also accommodate proprietary databases, including warranty claims and other consumer related databases, to perform customized analyses. Data and risk analysis services include: database development and cross-database linkages, reliability assessment, survey design and data collection, statistical modeling and analysis, and product safety evaluations.
