The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) is a HUD report to the U.S. Congress that provides nationwide estimates of homelessness, including information about the demographic characteristics of homeless persons, service use patterns, and the capacity to house homeless persons. The report is based on Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) data about persons who experience homelessness during a 12-month period, point-in-time counts of people experiencing homelessness on one day in January, and data about the inventory of shelter and housing available in a community.
The Crime Data Explorer is part of the FBI’s broader effort to modernize the reporting of national crime data. The CDE pages provide a view of estimated national and state data, reported agency-level crime statistics, and graphs of specific variables from the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). You can also download bulk datasets from a variety of UCR topics.
Florida’s Computerized Criminal History (CCH) system is a fingerprint-based repository that collects electronic arrest and disposition data from law enforcement and criminal justice agencies across the state. Unless fingerprints were taken at a later stage in the criminal justice process, CCH does not include records involving a notice to appear, direct file, or sworn complaint where no jail booking has taken place. The presentations contain datasets comprised of the records with the date of arrest going back approximately 10 years. Only adult records and records of juveniles treated as adults are included in this statistic.

"The survey (NCVS) is the nation's primary source of information on criminal victimization. "NCVS collects information from victims on nonfatal violent and property crimes, reported and not reported to the police, against persons age 12 or older. Each year, data are obtained from a nationally representative sample of about 90,000 households, comprising nearly 160,000 persons, on the frequency, characteristics, and consequences of criminal victimization in the United States. Each household is interviewed twice during the year." NCVS looks at crime as experienced by victims."
