Uniform Crime Reports,
Date of Collection:
County law enforcement agencies in the United States.
Data Collection Notes:
(1) Data have been aggregated to the county
level. Within each county, data for agencies reporting 6 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. (2)
These files are a subset of UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS: COUNTY LEVEL
DETAILED ARREST AND OFFENSE DATA, 1988 (ICPSR 9335), and were created
to be used with NATIONAL JUDICIAL REPORTING PROGRAM, 1988: [UNITED
STATES] (ICPSR 9449). Users wishing to replicate figures in the Bureau
of Justice Statistics report entitled "Felony Sentences in State
Courts, 1988" should use both this collection and ICPSR 9449.
Counties were selected to match those chosen for NATIONAL
JUDICIAL REPORTING PROGRAM, 1988: [UNITED STATES] (ICPSR 9449).

these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Standardized missing values.
