Expanded offense data.

Definition

The FBI collects the number of offenses for the crimes of murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. In addition to the number of offenses known to the police, the FBI also collects additional data about these offenses, such as the locations of robberies, time of day of burglaries, and other analyses about the offenses. These expanded data also include trends (2-, 5-, and 10- year comparisons) in both crime volume and crime rate per 100,000 inhabitants. Expanded homicide data, (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) are also available.

Data collection

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