Status of NIBRS in the States

As of June 2013, 33 states have been certified to report NIBRS to the FBI, and three additional states and the District of Columbia have individual agencies submitting NIBRS data.   Fifteen states are only submitting incident-based data, covering 100% of their state law enforcement agencies. Approximately 30% of the population is covered by NIBRS reporting, representing 29% of the nation's reported crime and 38% of law enforcement agencies.  Seven additional states, 2 individual agencies and 4 Federal agencies are currently in the testing phase, while NIBRS is still in the developmental stage in 7 states or territories.  According to the FBI, six states currently have no formalized plan to report incident-based data.

To view the agencies reporting in each state, see State Profiles; for additional information on projects currently underway, in both certified and uncertified states, please see State IBR Analyses and State Projects Using IBR Data. You can also view the 25 Largest NIBRS Agencies.
