ABSTRACT

Conversion of NIBRS Data to Summary Data   [open pdf - 146KB]

"Law enforcement agencies across the Nation began implementing incident-based reporting systems over a decade ago. Today, many agencies are either certified to report crime data through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) or are in the process of developing NIBRS reporting systems. However, until the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program receives the preponderance of data via NIBRS, the FBI will continue to report crime statistics to the Nation in the traditional format. During this period of transition, statistics submitted by agencies that have achieved NIBRS capability are converted to the traditional Summary format and then incorporated into the national crime database. This document explains in detail the procedures followed by the FBI when converting NIBRS data to Summary data."
