Uniform Crime Reports

The FBIs UCR Program, which began in 1929, collects
information on the following crimes reported to law enforcement
authorities: homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated
assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson.
Arrests are reported for 21 additional crime categories.
The UCR data are compiled from monthly law enforcement
reports or individual crime incident records transmitted directly
to the FBI or to centralized state agencies that then report to
the FBI. Each report submitted to the UCR Program is examined
thoroughly for reasonableness, accuracy, and deviations
that may indicate errors. Large variations in crime levels may
indicate modified records procedures, incomplete reporting, or
changes in a jurisdictions boundaries. To identify any unusual
fluctuations in an agencys crime counts, monthly reports are
compared with previous submissions of the agency and with
those for similar agencies.

In 1995, law enforcement agencies active in the UCR
Program represented approximately 251 million United States
inhabitants or 95 percent of the U.S. population.
The UCR Program provides crime counts for the Nation as
a whole, as well as for regions, states, counties, cities, and towns.
This permits studies among neighboring jurisdictions and
among those with similar populations and other common characteristics.
UCR findings for each calendar year are published in a
preliminary release in the spring, followed by a detailed annual
report, Crime in the United States, issued in the following
calendar year. In addition to crime counts and trends, this report
includes data on crimes cleared, persons arrested (age, sex,
and race), law enforcement personnel (including the number
of sworn officers killed or assaulted), and the characteristics of
homicides (including age, sex, and race of victims and offenders,
victim-offender relationships, weapons used, and circum-stances
surrounding the homicides). Other special reports are
also available from the UCR Program.
