How Crime in the United States is Measured
This Congressional Research Service report provides an overview of the three main systems for collecting data on crime, the Uniform Crime reports, National Incident Based Crime Reporting System and the National Crime Victimization Survey including their historical background, method of data collection and strengths and weaknesses.
Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics
The most comprehensive compilation of data on all aspects of U.S. criminal justice. Most tables are reproduced exactly as they appeared in the original source, however, when possible latest data are combined with earlier data to show trends. Updated as data is compiled, so the online version is more current than the annual print version.
