Arrests, Metropolitan Counties, 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 metropolitan counties in 2005 broken down by race. The table also shows the percent distribution of arrests among races. The table furnishes these data for all individuals arrested in metropolitan counties and includes breakdowns for persons under 18 and persons 18 years of age and over.
- The totals provided in this table reflect only those persons arrested for which law enforcement agencies provided race information to the UCR Program; therefore, the totals may not match those shown in other arrest tables for metropolitan counties.
- The Metropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located within currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (See Area Definitions.)
- 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 data used in creating this table were from all metropolitan county law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data 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 counties by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
