National 911 Profile Database
Nationwide 911 data is key for accurate understanding of the current status and planned capabilities of 911 systems across the United States.
A number of fundamental questions about 911 remain unanswered, including:
- How many call centers or public safety answering points (PSAPs) exist nationwide?
- How many 911 calls occur every year, month, etc.?
- What types of calls are made to 911?
Without these data, it is difficult for state and federal governments to allocate the proper amount of funding to 911 agencies or develop appropriate governance models and oversight policy.
In an effort to capture 911 data, the National 911 Profile Database, managed by the National 911 Program and promoted in collaboration with the National Association of State 911 Administrators (NASNA), voluntarily collects data that can be used to measure and report on the progress of states and 911 authorities in enhancing 911 systems.
The National 911 Program provides an annual analysis of the National 911 Profile Database by publishing a National 911 Progress Report. To provide the most complete picture possible of the status of 911, the Program has also partnered with the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) in creating a map that combines their respective datasets. This map can be found in the Review of Nationwide Data Collection document on 911.gov. The map below depicts state participation in the National 911 Profile Database collection of 2014 data.
