Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data [United States]: Arrests by Age, Sex, and Race, 1990 (ICPSR 23340) RSS

Alternate Title:  ASR, 1990

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

These data provide information on the number of arrests reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program each year by police agencies in the United States. These arrest reports provide data on 43 offenses including violent crime, drug use, gambling, and larceny. The data received by ICPSR were structured as a hierarchical file containing (per reporting police agency) an agency header record, 1 to 12 monthly header records, and 1 to 43 detail offense records containing the counts of arrests by age, sex, and race for a particular offense. ICPSR restructured the original data to a rectangular format.
