DatasetAdded By Infochimps
The FBI has gathered crime offense statistics from law enforcement agencies across the Nation through its Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program since 1930. These data have been published each year, and since 1958, have been available in the publication Crime in the United States (CIUS). As a supplement to CIUS, the FBI, in cooperation with the Bureau of Justice Statistics, provides this site that allows users to build their own customized data tables.
The UCR Program collects statistics for violent crime (murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) and property crime (burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). By congressional mandate, arson was added as the eight Part 1 offense category in 1979. Arson statistics are not included in this tool. By using the table-building tool, users can specify offenses, locality (city, state), and year(s).
The table-building tool provides information within the following parameters:
- National crime statistics from 1960 through the most recent year available
- State crime statistics from 1960 through the most recent year available
- City and county statistics from 1985 through the most recent year available
(Data are for city jurisdictions with populations of 10,000 or more and county agencies of 25,000 or more. Not all data are available for each jurisdiction for each year.)
