The Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) data includes annual counts of offenses including murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson. The crime counts are available at the county level and organized by year, from 1994 to 2014 and 2016. The UCR data is collected from local law enforcement agencies through the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting Program and then aggregated, imputed, and distributed by the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD).
