Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data [United States]: County-Level Detailed Arrest and Offense Data, 1990 (ICPSR 9785)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Justice. Federal Bureau of Investigation
This data collection contains counts of arrests and offenses for Part I offenses (murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson) and Part II offenses (forgery, fraud, embezzlement, vandalism, weapons violations, sex offenses, drug and alcohol abuse violations, gambling, vagrancy, curfew violations, and runaways). Two sets of county populations are reported: one for total county population and the other for counties reporting six months or more of data.
These data are freely available.

Data Collection Notes:
Data have been aggregated to the county level. Within each county, data for agencies reporting 6 to 11 months of information were weighted to yield 12-month equivalents. Agencies reporting fewer than 6 months of data were excluded from the aggregation. Data from agencies reporting only statewide figures were allocated to counties in proportion to each county's share of the state population (which totaled the populations of those county agencies reporting six months or more of data).
- Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
