Whitepaper: Methods of Data Quality Control: For Uniform Crime Reporting Programs

by Federal Bureau of InvestigationJan 01, 2008

This paper published by Federal Bureau of Investigation talks about Methods of Data Quality Control. Since the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is founded upon the voluntary participation of the Nation’s law enforcement agencies, the integrity and the accuracy of its data rest upon two factors: the efforts of individual law enforcement agencies in reporting accurate data and the Program’s capability for data quality control (detecting and rectifying errors or aberrations in reported data). The results and methods of data quality reviews cannot be separated from the subsequent data estimations.
