USA crime rates as incidents/100,000 population by state for several categories of property and violent crimes from 1960 - 2014 (except for New York, which starts in 1965).
A data frame with 2745 observations on the following 12 variables.
a factor with
state.abb as its levels
estimated population, numeric
overall estimated violent crime rate, numeric
overall estimated property crime rate, numeric
Note that these are estimates, and there are various caveats and inconsistencies in definitions and reporting methods among states and over time. Consult the source for details.
The data are ordered by state and year within state. The levels of the (unordered) State factor are
state.abb but in the full state name order of
state.name. Hence, for example, AL will procede AK and AZ will precede AR in the default ordering of the levels, because Alabama precedes Alaska and Arizona precedes Arkansas in lexicographic order.
