- This table provides the percent distribution of violent crime, property crime, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft offenses by region.
- The UCR Program does not have sufficient data to estimate arson offenses.
- This table represents the 2005 geographical distribution of estimated offenses and population.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies in the UCR Program (including those submitting less than 12 months of data).
- Crime statistics include estimated offense totals (except arson) for agencies submitting less than 12 months of offense reports for each year.
- The FBI bases population distributions on the U.S. Census Bureau's provisional estimates for 2005. Population statistics are based on the U.S. Census Bureau's 2004 revised estimates and 2005 provisional estimates.
