These data provide information on the number of arrests
reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Uniform Crime
Reporting (UCR) Program each year by police agencies in the United
States. Although not as well known as the "Crimes Known to the Police" data drawn from the Uniform crime report's Return A form, the arrest reports by age, sex, and race provide valuable data on 43 offenses including violent, drug, gambling, and larceny crimes.

Scope of Study
Uniform Crime Reports,
Smallest Geographic Unit:
states, counties, and cities
Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation:
Arrests reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's
Uniform Crime Reporting program.
The data for the Uniform Crime Reports are submitted voluntarily by city, county, and state law enforcement agencies. Some agencies receive forms directly from the FBI and return them directly to the FBI. Many others receive forms from state collecting programs and return the reports to those programs. The state programs, in turn, forward the reports to the FBI. Reports are sent out and collected on a monthly basis.
Mode of Data Collection:
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Standardized missing values.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
