Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data [United States]: Offenses Known and Clearances by Arrest in All Cities with Populations Over 250,000, 1987-1988 (ICPSR 9336)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Justice. Federal Bureau of Investigation

Summary:

Since 1930, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has compiled the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) to serve as periodic nationwide assessments of reported crime not available elsewhere in the criminal justice system. Each year, this information is reported in four types of files: (1) Offenses Known and Clearances by Arrest, (2) Property Stolen and Recovered, (3) The Supplementary Homicide Reports (SHR), and (4) Police Employee (LEOKA) data. This collection contains Offenses Known and Clearances by Arrest data and includes monthly information on the number of Crime Index offenses reported, the number of offenses cleared by arrest or other means, and the number of adults and juveniles arrested in cities with populations over 250,000. The counts include all reports of Index Crimes (excluding arson) received from victims, from officers who discovered infractions, or from other sources.

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:

  • Standardized missing values.
  • Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
