Annotation: This manual contains a brief project description and the codebooks for the five files of a 1979-80 study of persons arrested but not convicted for robbery or burglary in San Diego, Calif., and Jacksonville, Fla.
Abstract: The project description indicates that defendants in felony robbery and burglary cases constitute the unit of analysis. The information on each defendant is reported to include demographics, socioeconomic status, criminal history, weapon usage, relationship to victim, trial procedures, and disposition. The five codebooks presented cover Jacksonville robberies, San Diego robberies, San Diego burglaries, Jacksonville burglaries-1, and Jacksonville burglaries-2. The Jacksonville burglaries have been divided into two files which must be merged to have a complete data set for burglaries in that city. An introduction to the codebooks explains the special types of codes: rank-order code, mapped code, geometric code, semigeometric code, and multiple-digit geometric code. The format for each file precedes its codebook. The logical record length for each file is indicated.
