Standardizing the Display of IBR Data: Property Variables

Three property variables are discussed: Type Property Loss, Property Description, and Value of Property.

Data Collection Guidelines and Data Quality
Since each property data element has different characteristics, each is presented separately.

Frequencies and Rate of Missing Data in NIBRS
Compare the frequencies of property types and missing data in your data with the national data set.

View Tables Developed by the FBI
In the FBI's preliminary analysis using NIBRS, data were used to illustrate NIBRS content and capabilities by providing simple, easy-to-understand tables and charts.  Relevant tables are presented and discussed.

Additional Examples
Additional examples from current publications are presented, showing how variable values can be grouped and displayed.  SPSS syntax is available for recreating each example.
