UCR Arrest Data

Welcome to the Wisconsin Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Data Dashboard Center!

 

Thank you for visiting the UCR Arrest Data dashboard!  The dashboard provides a more dynamic and interactive way to access UCR data, in place of static tables or reports.  The dashboard may be supplemented by reports on specific topics and a statewide summary, but will become the primary way to view and download UCR data for Wisconsin.

 

The tabs at the top of the dashboard will take you to different views where you can query the data by geography, time period, crime type, and other factors.  Please visit the Read Me! (Data Notes) tab for more detail on the data sources and limitations.

 

The dashboards were developed and are maintained by the Bureau of Justice Information and Analysis (BJIA), of the WI Department of Justice. Data are refreshed regularly and new dashboards will be added over time, so come back soon!

 

If you need something other than what is available here, or if you have comments or questions about the dashboards or the UCR program, please email statsanalysis@doj.state.wi.us.

 

 

Instructions to download data from the dashboard:

Option 1:

  • Click on the visualization (map, graph, data table, etc.) you want to download.  Note that the appearance may not change once selected or the cells may change color in the table.
  • Right click on and select “view data”

  • The data will open in a new window
  • Select “Download all rows as a text file”
  • The data will then be available in a file you can open in Excel or another program for further analysis.

Option 2:

  • Click on the visualization (map, graph, data table, etc.) you want to download.  Note that the appearance may not change once selected or the cells may change color in the table.
  • Click on the Download button in the lower right corner of the dashboard footer:

  • If you have selected a valid visualization, the Crosstab and Data options should be available to select. 
  • Click on the type of download you would like to perform.

 

Choosing Tableau Workbook will result in a packaged workbook (version 9.2) that can be opened with Tableau Reader (free), Tableau Public (free) or Tableau Desktop (dashboard authoring software for purchase).

Choosing PDF will open several options, such as saving just the dashboard vs. all the worksheets that make up the dashboard, as a .pdf.  Paper orientation and size can also be selected.

Choosing Crosstab will result in a .csv file of the data currently displayed in the dashboard for the selected visualization.  That is, with the filter selections that have been selected (year, crime type, etc.)

Choosing Data and “Download all rows as a text file” will result in a .csv file of the data underlying the entire dashboard, not limited by the filter selection.  This file will include fields not displayed in the chosen visualization.

Choosing Image will result in a .png picture of just the dashboard, without the header, other tabs, etc. - essentially a cropped screenshot of what you see on the screen.
