Question description

Measuring and describing crime statistics can be a real challenge. For this assignment, you'll be comparing two important sources of crime data, the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and the National Crime Victim Survey (NCVS), to better understand the differences between them.

To complete the assignment, select a crime category that is reported in both the UCR and NCVS (homicide, rape/sexual assault, aggravated assault, etc.) and then, in a 1-2 page paper, do the following:

  • Select a year and identify statistical figures for the crime category you chose in both the UCR and NCVS
  • Describe the differences you see between the UCR figures and NCVS figures for that crime category
  • Discuss differences between the definitions of the crime category in the UCR and NCVS
  • Describe what is meant by the phrase, "dark figure of crime," in terms of the NCVS, and what role it plays in understanding differences between UCR statistics and NCVS statistics
Please provide and Intro and conclusion
