Published by the FBI, these reports were the first statistical analyses of national crime rates. Begun in 1930, they are published annually to track changes in crime and the demographics of crime as reported by police precincts nationwide. These reports have been used for decades not only to study changes in criminal activity but also to support government programs related to policing and criminal justice. ICPSR provides access to the data itself.
Published by the Bureau of Justice Statistics since 1972, this annual report is a survey of crime victims nationwide. It reports the number of times individuals are victimized and their responses to crime. The NCVS is a great resource to compare to the Uniform Crime Reports because this survey includes incidents that are not reported to law enforcement.
