Download Data Declaration
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This two-year trend table provides the number of offenses for 2004 and 2005, and the percent change between the two comparison years for metropolitan counties and nonmetropolitan counties.
- Metropolitan counties include sheriffs and county law enforcement agencies associated with a Metropolitan Statistical Area. Nonmetropolitan counties include sheriffs and county law enforcement agencies that are not associated with a Metropolitan Statistical Area.
- Offenses from state police agencies are not included in this table.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting at least 6 common months of complete offense reports for 2004 and 2005.
- In calculating trends, the UCR Program includes only common reported months for individual agencies.
The FBI calculated 2005 state growth rates using revised 2004 state/national population estimates and 2005 provisional state/national population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. The FBI then estimated population figures for city and county jurisdictions by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
