This data collection was designed to estimate the extent and
variation of individual offending by crime type, race, age, and prior
criminal record. Included in this collection are the criminal records
of individuals aged 16 years or older who were arrested in the state of
New York. Two separate data files are supplied. Part 1 contains data on
all adults arrested in New York from 1972 to 1976 for rape, murder,
robbery, aggravated assault, or burglary. Part 2 includes data on all
adults arrested for larceny or auto theft in Albany and Erie counties.
Variables include items such as sex, race, age, number of prior
arrests, date and place of arrest, arrest charged, number of multiple
counts, court disposition of charges, and type and length of sentence.
