Standardizing the Display of IBR Data: Time and Date Variables
Tables Presented by the FBI
In the FBI's preliminary tables using NIBRS, data were used to illustrate NIBRS content
and capabilities by providing simple, easy-to-understand tables and charts. One
table uses time of day to demonstrate the occurrence of crimes against persons, crimes
against property, and crimes against society.
To create this table, offenses were grouped into crime categories as defined by the FBI.
As the table shows, crimes against persons, property, and society occurred most
frequently between the hours of 3 p.m. and 11 p.m.
