During this unit, we discussed how crime statistics are recorded and the two different theories behind why. For this
assignment, you will research these data measurement tools in greater detail in order to better grasp an understanding of
how they work and why we use them.
In your essay, answer the following questions:
What is the purpose of the NCVS and the UCR, and how are they used?
Why do we use these tools to measure crime?
Why are the numbers given by the UCR not an accurate portrayal of crime?
How does the NCVS assist in helping give a more accurate crime picture?
What are the advantages and disadvantages to the UCR and the NCVS?
In your explanation, go beyond the definition and purpose of the NCVS and UCR. Look into how we measure, present, and
share data. Use this information to support your explanation and analysis.
Your essay must be two pages in length not counting a title and reference page. Minimum sources must include the NCVS
and UCR.
