Abstract/Description

In March 2006, the United States Federal Government mandated that by December 31st, 2006 data on cargo theft in the U.S. be reported in its own section of the Uniform Crime Report produced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Cargo theft in the United States represents not only the loss of property by the owner, but also threats to the U.S. economy and national security. With the data compiled by the FBI through mandatory reporting by state and local agencies, certain significant characteristics determined through statistical analyses may be able to help identify who likely suspects are for instances of cargo theft.
