Allstate Americas Best Drivers Report

Page 8 of 9

The Allstate Americas Best Drivers Report tabulates property damage collision frequency of Allstate insured drivers from 2012-2013.
The report analyzes the 200 largest cities from the U.S. Census Bureau's Annual Estimates of the Population for Incorporated Places over
50,000, measured for 2013 as of July 1, 2014. In prior years, neighboring cities that shared zip codes also shared rankings. This only
impacted a minimal number of cities; however, in 2014 and 2015, the report used geolocation to increase accuracy and there are no longer
shared rankings. U.S. Census Bureau data was used to obtain the population density factor. For the precipitation factor, National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data was utilized. Allstate Drivewise data is based on Allstate customers voluntarily enrolled in
the telematics program from 2010-2014. A number of cities from the full 200 Best Drivers rankings are excluded in the Drivewise data due
to the limited measurable data available, or because Drivewise was not available (California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas).
The Allstate Best Drivers Report is produced solely to boost the countrys discussion about safe driving and to increase awareness of the
importance of being safe and attentive behind the wheel. The report is not used to determine auto insurance rates.
