Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data: County-Level Detailed Arrest and Offense Data, 2010
ICPSR Data Collection Description
The UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM DATA: COUNTY-LEVEL DETAILED ARREST AND OFFENSE DATA, 2010 reports counts of arrests and offenses for the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) index (Part I) crimes: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson. The UCR County-level Arrest files also report arrests for additional (Part II) crimes such as forgery, fraud, vice offenses, and drug possession or sale. The data were originally collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from reports submitted by agencies and states participating in the UCR Program. Each agency or jurisdiction is uniquely identified in the collection by the UCR Originating Agency Identifier (ORI). In describing this data collection the terms agency, jurisdiction, and ORI are used synonymously. Detailed discussions of reporting procedures are found in the UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING HANDBOOK (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1980), and in the codebooks for the ICPSR's Agency-level UCR data collections (see ICPSR 9028). It should be emphasized that, while UCR staff were consulted in developing the new adjustment procedures, these UCR county-level files are not official FBI UCR releases and are being provided for research purposes only. Users with questions regarding these UCR county-level data files can contact the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data at the ICPSR.
