FBI Releases Quarterly Uniform Crime Report Data with Violent Crime Percent Changes from 2022 to 2023

Quarterly Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data for the nation is derived from National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) reports voluntarily submitted to the FBI.

The FBI Quarterly UCR data release for January through December 2023 was made available on March 18, 2024. This report is based on data received from 15,199 of 19,152 law enforcement agencies in the country. Most violent crimes decreased; however, there was a one percent increase of robberies in metropolitan counties and a one percent increase of robberies in the southern region. The most significant change was a 21 percent decrease in murders reported by cities with populations between 250,000 to 499,999.

UCR data is preliminary and can change as agencies submit updates. Figures are rounded to the nearest percent.

These statistics and other UCR data are available in the Crime Data Explorer.
