Question and answer
What are the instruments for measuring crime? Who uses these instruments and how is the collected data used to advance the fight against crime?
There are two main ways that street crime is measured in the U.S. The first is with the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). This is computed by adding together the major crimes that are reported to the police who in turn report to the F.B.I. [ who in turn publish the findings. The other measure of crime comes from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). ]

The instruments for measuring crime is the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) is a large database, complied by the FBI, of crimes reported and arrests made each year throughout the United States. It is used for measuring crime. The UCR is used by the Criminologists , as a way to have a better understanding of the nature and extent of crime as well. Statistics, according to various policing agencies put their data into computers, and it's then sorted by regions.
About 17,000 records are complied from these various agencies. Once all the crime is recorded from the agencies by the FBI, it is then split in two parts, part I and part II crimes. Part I crimes are the eight most serious offenses in the UCR. These serious offenses are murder, forceable rape, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, arson, larceny and motor vehicle theft. Part I crimes are considered to be more serious and violent in comparison to Part II crimes.

what are the instruments that measures crime?
Weegy: There are two main ways that street crime is measured in the U.S. The first is with the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). This is computed by adding together the major crimes that are reported to the police who in turn report to the F.B.I. [ who in turn publish the findings. The other measure of crime comes from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). About 20 years ago it became clear that only a proportion of crimes are actually reported to the police and that if we wanted a more accurate count, we would have to conduct scientific surveys of the population and ask people if they had been victims of crime. This is what the NCVS does. ] (More)

how does choice theories of crime affect society?
Weegy: kindly check this link.. [smile] Rational choice theory has sprung from older and more experimental collections of hypothesis surrounding what have been essentially, [ the empirical findings from many scientific investigations into the workings of human nature. The conceiving and semblance of these social models which are hugely applicable to the methodology expressed through the function of microeconomics within society are also similarly placed to demonstrate that a sizable amount of data is collated using behavioral techniques which are tweaked and made adjustable in order to ensure compatibility with the spontaneous motivational drives displayed by the consumer. ] ] (More)
