More details of the data format are available on the Crime Open Database website. Variables marked * are only available for some of the data, due to limitations in the data published by some cities.

The variables in this dataset mirror those obtained by calling get_crime_data(type = "core"), except that some fields have been removed because they are redundant (e.g. if they have the same value for all rows in this dataset).
