The Bureau of Justice Statistics is dedicated to collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information on crime, victims of crime, criminal offenders, and the operation of the criminal justice systems at all levels of government. The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) is a Justice Department census tool that collects detailed information about people victimized by certain types of crime.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics exposes the NCVS criminal victimization data through a RESTful API. The data describes the frequency, characteristics, and consequences of criminal victimization in the United States.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
