This data collection examines gang and non-gang homicides as
well as other types of offenses in small California jurisdictions. Data
are provided on violent gang offenses and offenders as well as on a
companion sample of non-gang offenses and offenders. Two separate data
files are supplied, one for participants and one for incidents. The
participant data include age, gender, race, and role of participants.
The incident data include information from the "violent incident data
collection form" (setting, auto involvement, and amount of property
loss), and the "group indicators coding form" (argot, tattoos,
clothing, and slang terminology).
