Uniform crime reporting
Uniform crime reporting and the National Crime Victimization Survey are reporting techniques to statistically measure the rate of crime, and the types of crimes experienced in a demographic. The reporting methodologies differ; the NCVS is a survey (which means that the data is self-reported). Uniform crime reporting is data collected from law enforcement agencies. According to the FBI, UCR is a program that provides data for research purposes, criminal justice intelligence, and for public dissemination.
