Crime in Ohio: Analyses of OIBRS Data

Description

Our primary objective in this study was to develop techniques to explore crime incident data sent by Ohio police agencies to the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services under the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS). OIBRS crime data are more complete than the crime data collected by the FBI since 1930, as part of its Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. The categories in the UCR program are too broad to provide an indication of what might have caused the crime to occur or what type of control prevention strategy might be most useful on the part of the police or other organizations, objectives that may be achievable using OIBRS. This report is an attempt to see to what extent OIBRS data can shed light in these areas.
