The problem with the UCRs is that the data is reported by individual law enforcement agencies and is often incomplete. For example, during its reign as murder capital of the U.S., DC would often not report data by the deadline, causing the FBI to estimate numbers based on previous reports.

The CDC mortality data is more accurate but doesn't break out cause of death as specifically as the FBI's since it is filled out by doctors rather than investigators.
