3 UNCLASSIFIED Definition of Error An error is any data that the FBI UCR’s computer finds and rejects during the processing of a submission. Errors keep UCR data from being copied to the master file, therefore, whenever reports such as Return A record cards are run, data with errors are missing. Printed on: 5/2/20153

4 UNCLASSIFIED NIBRS Error Data Set (EDS) Your EDS is sent to you electronically after each submission All errors must be fixed and resubmitted Incidents with unresolved errors do not write to the UCR master file – crime counts are not accurate for publication – the number of offenses housed by the FBI do not match those that the state has on file Printed on: 5/2/20154
