Arrests, City, by Race, 2005
Download Data Declaration
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in cities, broken down by race. It also furnishes the percent distribution for each offense and a breakdown of these data by race for juveniles (persons under 18) and adults.
- Because some persons may be arrested more than once during a year, the statistics in this table could, in some cases, represent multiple arrests of the same person.
- The totals provided in this table reflect only those persons arrested for whom law enforcement agencies provided race information to the UCR Program; therefore, the totals may not match those shown in other arrest tables for cities.
- City law enforcement agencies are defined as all agencies within Population Groups I-VI. (See Area Definitions.)
The data used in creating this table were from city law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete arrest data, including race information, for 2005.
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 jurisdictions by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
