Uniform Crime Reports,
Smallest Geographic Unit:
state, county, and jurisdiction
Date of Collection:
Hate crime incidents reported by law enforcement agencies
in the United States.
Data Collection Notes:
The original hierarchical file has been split into two files: a Batch Header file and an Incident Record file. The Batch Header file contains a record for each law enforcement agency whether or not they reported an incident. The Batch Header file variables are merged into the Incident Record File for those agencies that reported an incident.
Each victim-type variable has been split into eight separate flag variables to record each victim type. Previously, the variables were eight-character strings that contained the first letter of each victim type in any order.
Mode of Data Collection:
computer-assisted self interview (CASI),
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:
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
