Abstract: This data collection examines gang and non-gang homicides as well as other types of offenses in small California jurisdictions. Data are provided on violent gang offenses and offenders as well as on a companion sample of non-gang offenses and offenders. Two separate data files are supplied, one for participants and one for incidents. The participant data include age, gender, race, and role of participants. The incident data include information from the ''violent incident data collection form'' (setting, auto involvement, and amount of property loss), and the ''group indicators coding form'' (argot, tattoos, clothing, and slang terminology).
