The US Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Statistics website provides information on crime statistics by state. This page allows you to create data tables on state by state trends, trends in one variable (eg., robbery), or on crime statistics for a particular year (eg., 1975). The data set goes back to 1960. The site also includes a page on homicide trends and characteristics (eg., age, race, gender of victim, etc.) by state.
