  • Abstract

    These are the fixed-width ASCII files that the FBI sends you when you request Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program data. All data are .dat or .txt files. I did not make any changes to the data at all. For a small number of files (mostly data within the last few years), I changed the file name to indicate the data category (e.g. arrests, arson) or to add the .dat extension. Also included are the documents that the FBI provides that instructs users on how to make an .sps or .sas setup file to read in the data ("record descriptions".
    Please note that when unzipped the files may be quite large.

    The following data are available:
    • Arson, 1979-2017
    • Arrests by Age, Sex, and Race - Monthly Data, 1974-2016
    • Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA), 1960-2017
    • Offenses Known and Cleared by Arrest (Return A), 1960-2017
    • Property Stolen and Recovered (Supplement to Return A), 1960-2017
