Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary These data provide information on the number of arrests reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program each month by police agencies in the United States. Although not as well known as the "Crimes Known to the Police" data drawn from the Uniform Crime Report's Return A form, the arrest reports by age, sex, and race provide valuable data on 43 offenses including violent, drug, gambling, and larceny crimes. The data received  were structured as a hierarchical file containing (per reporting police agency) an agency header record, and 1 to 12 monthly header reports, and 1 to 43 detail offense records containing the counts of arrests by age, sex, and race for a particular offense. The data has been restructured from the original data to a rectangular format.

The codebook is for the data from 2015, but applies to this data. Minor changes were made in the column names as well as some aggregate columns (e.g. TOTAL column for all arrests) has been added.
