As promised, NASA in December released responses collected from the airline and general aviation pilot surveys as part of the National Aviation Operational Monitoring Service (NAOMS) project from April 2001 through December 2004. However, the safety data is heavily redacted and published in raw form, making it difficult to glean any useful conclusions.
