FBI, BJS launch online data tool to analyse crime data

Enables users perform queries on variables like year, agency, and type of offense

By CBR Staff Writer

The Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and the FBI have launched an online data tool to make it easier to research and analyse crime data.

According to the FBI, The Uniform Crime Data (UCR) Data Tool enables users perform queries on variables like year, agency, and type of offense.

Until now, making comparisons of the UCR crime data required searching the annual reports and then manually crunching the numbers.

The new tool aims to make it easier for users, including the law enforcement partners who supply the data, to make use of the raw numbers.

BJS developed the UCR data tool for the FBI as part of on-going collaboration between the two agencies to improve crime data accessibility and provide information to the public.

The new tool will replace the BJS long-standing data online tool that presented crime trends from the FBI’s UCR.
