Alternate Title: ASR Yearly, 2012
United States Department of Justice. Federal Bureau of Investigation
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, 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 logical
record length format with the agency header record variables copied
onto the detail records. Consequently, each record contains arrest
counts for a particular agency-offense.
