The Federal Bureau of Investigation makes the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data publicly available, and has even introduced a web-based tool to search the data in 2010. But Google’s Public Data service may offer the best option to quickly customize and display UCR crime data. You can even embed the charts in your website, but only if you can use iframe tags, which wordpress.com does not allow.

These graphs all look at the rate per 100,000 from 1960 to 2009. Click the images to go directly to the tables in Google Public Data, where you can change the variables to create your own graphs.

Homicide

Forcible Rape

Robbery

Aggravated Assault

What’s interesting in these graphs?

Well, homicide is probably the best indicator of overall violent crime because almost all homicides are known to law enforcement. And, of course, the UCR data only include those crimes known to law enforcement. Compare homicide with forcible rape (FBI’s terminology and definition) with homicide, and I think what you largely see is differences in reporting rather than differences in actual rates in a year-by-year comparison.

What else do you see?

  5. In the awesome petatrn of things you secure a B+ for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually confused us was first in your particulars. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more correct here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you just what did deliver the results. The article (parts of it) is definitely incredibly persuasive and this is possibly why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can certainly notice the leaps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of just how you appear to connect the points which help to make the actual final result. For now I will subscribe to your position but wish in the near future you connect the facts much better.
