The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is a long-standing, nationwide cooperative program of over 16,000 city, county, and state law enforcement agencies. This statistical program is a compilation of data voluntarily reported by these agencies. The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is continually changing in an effort to maintain that relationship so law enforcement agencies and personnel can meet each challenge in the years to come.
NOTE: Users are cautioned against comparisons of crime trends presented in this report and reports produced by the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). Because of differences in methodology and crime coverage, the two programs examine the nation's crime problem from different perspectives, and the results are not strictly comparable. The definitional and procedural differences can account for many of the apparent discrepancies in results from the two programs. Appendix IV, "The Nation's Two Crime Measures," contains a detailed description for NCVS and UCR.
