Participation in the UCR (Uniform Crime Reports) is voluntary and some didn't summit data according to FBI's guidelines. In FBI data tables you often see these declarations (disclaimers):

"In 2007, law enforcement agencies active in the UCR Program represented more than 285 million United States inhabitants—94.6 percent of the total population"


"Hence you see discrepancies between FBI and CDC data. For example, FBI recorded a total of 8775 firearm homicides in year 2010 while CDC recorded 11078 , 2303 is such a big difference.

CDC records are said to be more accurate in regard to fatalities because it's based on death certificates."

But the accuracy of some key data is appalling, 2303 is more than 20%!
