Expanded Offense Data

Download Printable Document

Definition

Expanded offense data are the details of the various offenses that the Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects beyond the count of how many crimes law enforcement agencies report. These details may include the type of weapon used in a crime, type or value of items stolen, and so forth. Expanded homicide data provide supplemental details about murders such as the age, sex, and race of both the victim and the offender, the weapon used in the homicide, the circumstances surrounding the offense, and the relationship of the victim to the offender. In addition to these types of details, expanded data include trends (for example, 2-year comparisons) and rates per 100,000 inhabitants.

Data collection

Expanded offense data, including expanded homicide data, are details collected beyond the reports of the number of crimes known. As a result, law enforcement agencies can report an offense without providing the supplemental information about that offense.
