About the Crime Data Explorer
Since 1930, participating local, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies have voluntarily provided the nation with crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program via:
Summary data allows us to show crime rates as trends and totals. This data includes the number of offenses that were reported on a state or agency level. It captures the most serious offense involved in crime incidents according to the and supplemental details depending on the offense. For example, victim and offender data are collected only for murder offenses.
Incident-based data allow us to visualize how crime breaks down regarding victims, offenders, and other attributes related to a reported crime. NIBRS data records details regarding individual offenses and arrests that were part of an incident, such as information about the victim, offender, property involved, and arrestees, providing context that is not provided by the summary data.
