Help Us Complete the Streetsblog Traffic Fatality Database

Streetsblog is looking for someone to help bring our traffic fatality database up to date.

In 2012 we began logging all reported pedestrian and cyclist deaths into a Google Docs spreadsheet. As the year went on, we added data fields -- City Council district and NYPD precinct where each fatality occurred, the type of vehicle involved in each crash, etc. We need assistance to fill in missing information, based on Streetsblog and media reports.

We are offering $150 for the job, which we estimate will take six to eight hours. Please have working knowledge of Google Docs spreadsheets and be available to get started immediately.

Interested? Contact Brad at brad.streetsblog@gmail.com.
