Summary: Arson cases by agency, including type, damage, other characteristics

This Arson database reports the number of arson cases reported or known to police, the number of actual arson offenses, offenses cleared, offenses involving persons under age 18, habitation status of the structure, and estimated property damage.  Data are available for the United States, states, counties, and other reporting law enforcement agencies.  


Note: we have observed occasional, slight differences (typically < 5%) between data reported in summary tables on the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) site and data files from the FBI used to create the more detailed data on RAND State Statistics.  These differences appear to be limited to larger agencies.  Users should exercise caution in these cases.
