Data have been aggregated to the county level. Within each county, data for agencies reporting six to 11 months of information were weighted to produce 12-month equivalents. Data from agencies reporting only statewide figures were allocated to counties proportionate to their share of the state population. A related data collection containing a subset of these data is available from ICPSR under the title UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS: ARREST DATA FOR THE 75 MOST POPULOUS COUNTIES IN THE UNITED STATES, 1986 (ICPSR 9163).
