Three research questions are presented to demonstrate the use of NIBRS. Each example includes a written summary of the research question and supporting data as well as the syntax for generating the data set necessary to answer the research question.

Research Question 1: Are juveniles aged 10 - 17 more likely than adults to be involved in multiple offender incidents?

Research Question 2: What types of offenses are reported in juvenile multiple offender incidents and adult multiple offender incidents?

Research Question 3: At what time of day are most juvenile multiple offender property offenses committed?

One research question is presented to demonstrate the use of multiple segment analysis. The example includes a written summary of the research question and supporting data as well as the syntax for generating the data set necessary to answer the research question.

Research Question 4: What offenses are reported in juvenile multiple offender incidents in which the most serious offense is a Part I Index property crime?
