Welcome to JRSA's Incident-Based Reporting Resource Center. This site is being supported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to provide comprehensive information on accessing and using incident-based reporting data for the analysis of crime and reporting of justice statistics. The goal of the Center is to facilitate the use of state incident-based reporting (IBR) systems and the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) by crime analysts, researchers, and other justice professionals. The Center seeks to put practical analytical information and tools into the hands of analysts who want to work with incident-based data, and to provide a forum where analysts can exchange information and ideas about using IBR data.
Follow the links on the left to learn more about IBR data, see examples of charts and graphs generated from IBR data, read reports by analysts who use IBR data, and view on-line documents related to IBR systems and NIBRS.
If you have data, syntax, documentation, or examples you'd like to contribute, please contact us.
