This database reports the number of offenses (murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson) and auxiliary offense data (e.g., burglary: forcible entry, unlawful entry, and attempted entry) for each agency reporting data to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) in U.S. States.


The database also reports the number of reported offenses cleared by arrest or exceptional means and the number of clearances which involved only juveniles (under 18 years of age). 


The 2021 calendar year update from the FBI includes data from some area in some states, but it does not include all areas in all states.  As a temporary measure, we are reporting 2021 values when they appear to be valid using a simple formula.  Specifically, if the 2021 value is +/- 100% of the 2010-2020 average, we report the 2021 value.  Otherswise, we report the 2021 value as NR, or Not Reported. We expect to update this database when the FBI revises its 2021 data.
