Summary View help for Summary
This dataset was created to facilitate the conversion of Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program state and county codes to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) state and county codes. The four UCR agency-level data files archived at ICPSR in Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data: [United States] (ICPSR 9028) contain UCR state and county codes as geographic identifiers. Researchers who wish to use these data with other sources, such as Census data, may want to convert these UCR codes to FIPS codes in order to link the different data sources. This file was created to facilitate this linkage. It contains state abbreviations, UCR state and county codes, FIPS state and county codes, and county names for all counties present in the UCR data files since 1990. These same FIPS codes were used to create the UCR County-Level Detailed Arrest and Offense files from 1990-1996.
