Will 3rd qtr report include autopilot safety data?

There will be autoaccidents and injuries with autopilot, but I believe key factor would be the rate compared to cars not using autopilot. If a large difference in the rate of accidents with autopilot versus non autopilot then the difference will become more obvious quicker. Four weeks of data may not be enough time to see the difference but it may if there is a ten fold difference in rates of accidents. May hear something at the report
 
I find that doubtful. Not only was autopilot not released until after Q3, but before they report on statistics they would want to review each accident to determine the cause.

If the stats end up being good for Tesla (reduced accident rate) then I think we will eventually hear them from Tesla.

+1!

You won't see it as part of the report.
They MAY say something about it in the comments or Q&A in a general manner.
Hard data won't come until at least the Q4 report.

I am not sure any of the other manufacturers add data to their ER on how many accidents happened with cars using their brake assist, lane assist, collision avoidance systems. Once these car ran a couple million miles and we have some good cumulative data, Elon may bring it up on a CC or do blog post/tweet on number of accidents with Teslas before and after AP - if the figures are really good, that is. But making it a regular feature of the ER? I don`t see that happening.

So you suggest they would have some sorts of statistics on the first half month of data on the Q3 ER then not talk about this in Q4 and on? I don't know if that makes more or less sense. I am sure AP will be mentioned in the ER as a major feature rolled out, but I don't think they would have some meaningful statistics in such a short time. But i do think they will brag about milestones later on, like X miles driven with AP or Tesla accidents dropping by this much e.g. one year after rollout.
