Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data: County-Level Detailed Arrest and Offense Data, 2010
Additional Notes
In the UCR county-level arrest files, the population and data for jurisdictions located in multiple counties are provided only in the county containing the largest population component of the jurisdiction. Counties containing smaller population components of multiple-county jurisdictions will contain no population or arrest data for these jurisdictions. Data in counties affected by one or more multiple-county jurisdictions are indicated by a multi-county jurisdiction flag variable. In the county-level crimes reported files, the population and crime data for jurisdictions located in multiple counties are provided by the UCR proportioned to each county (maximum of three) in which the jurisdiction is located.



Drunkenness (FBI offense code 23) is not considered a crime in some states. States that do not consider drunkenness a crime, but which report data through the NIBRS system, such as North Dakota, may show arrest data for the offense in this data collection. This is because drunkenness may be listed as an incident in the NIBRS reporting system, even though there was technically no arrest in these states. Agencies in states where drunkenness is not a crime may use their own discretion in reporting drunkenness as an incident. Users should exercise caution when analyzing this variable because of these differences in reporting.



The original data from the FBI contain one record for New York City. Data from New York City are allocated into New York City's five counties on the basis of the proportion of the population in each county. For example, the population for Queens county is divided by the total population of New York City and the resulting proportion is multiplied with data from each of New York City's arrest and offense categories to apportion data to Queens county. The total population for New York City and the population for each of the five counties from the 2010 U.S. Census were used to calculate these proportions. The population of Goodlettsville City, Tennessee is proportioned to both Davidson County and Sumner County. Population from the 2010 U.S. Census was used to calculate the population breakdown of Goodlettsville, Tennessee.



Seven dummy records were created for the arrest data files and 65 dummy records were created for the crimes reported data files for counties not represented in the original FBI file. These county records provide only the state and county FIPS codes with the rest of the variables following county FIPS in the data file filled with zeros. No arrest data were provided for Florida. Limited arrest data were available for Illinois. Limited crimes reported data were available for Alaska, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, and South Dakota.



One SPSS data definition statement file and one SAS data definition statement file are provided for the one arrest data file (all ages) and one SPSS data definition statement file and one SAS data definition statement file are provided for the crimes reported data file (crimes reported). One SPSS data definition statement file and one SAS data definition statement file are provided for the one allocated statewide data for arrests files and one SPSS data definition statement file and one SAS data definition statement file are provided for the allocated statewide data for crimes reported file. The arrest data file has 56 variables, the crimes reported data file has 21 variables, the allocated statewide data for arrests file has 57 variables and the allocated statewide data for crimes reported file has 22 variables. All data files contain 3,177 cases.
