This dataset includes selected variables and cases from the
Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reports, 1958-1969,
and the County and City Data Books for 1962, 1967, and 1972. Data are
reported for all United States cities with a population of 75,000 or
more in 1960. Data from the Uniform Crime Reports include for each year
the number of homicides, forcible rapes, robberies, aggravated assaults,
burglaries, larcenies over 50 dollars, and auto thefts. Also included is the
Total Crime Index, which is the simple sum of all the crimes listed
above. Selected variables describing population characteristics and
city finances were taken from the 1962, 1967, and 1972 County and
City Data Books.

Data Collection Notes:
These data were taken from a dataset originally
created by Alvin L. Jacobson and were prepared for use in
ICPSR's Workshop on Data Processing and
Data Management in the Criminal Justice Field in the
summer of 1978, with further processing by Colin Loftin.
FBI Uniform Crime Reports, 1958-1969,
and the County and City Data Books for 1962, 1967, and 1972
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.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
