Publication Race and Ethnicity of Violent Crime Offenders and Arrestees, 2018

Allen J. Beck, Ph.D., BJS Statistician

January 14, 2021    NCJ 255969

This report compares the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program data on incidents of nonfatal violent crime to data from BJS's National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) to determine if arrest differences by race and ethnicity can be attributed to differences in criminal involvement. It examines offenders' characteristics as reported by victims in the NCVS and provides information on racial and ethnic disparities beyond an arrestee and population-based comparison.
