Improving access to crime data
The Crime Data Explorer (CDE) represents a profound transformation in how data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is presented. Crime data is dynamic. Offenses occur, arrests are made, and property is recovered every day. The CDE is an attempt to reflect somewhat that fluidity in crime. The data presented here will be updated regularly in a way that UCR publications previously could not. As the data is dynamic, so is this gateway to the data. The CDE’s content and features are updated and expanded continually. So, look for a time stamp that reflects the refresh date of content or statistics. This is especially important to reconcile any differences that may exist between the data that is available on the CDE pages and the data that resides in the datasets for downloading.
The data provided from Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program for updated 2016 data was made available on 6/22/2018.
