Comparison of NIBRS and UCR Definitions

A comparison of UCR and NIBRS definitions was compiled by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. All FBI UCR definitions were quoted directly from the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook published by the FBI (1984) or Crime in the United States, 1997, also published by the FBI (1998). All FBI NIBRS definitions were quoted directly from the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook: NIBRS Edition published by the FBI (1992).
