Table 69, Data Declaration
Arrests, by State, 2005
Download Data Declaration
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides arrest data for 29 separate UCR offenses for each state for 2005. The table provides both total arrests and arrests of juveniles (persons under the age of 18).
- These data represent the number of persons arrested; however, some persons may be arrested more than once during a year. Therefore, 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 law enforcement agencies who submitted 12 months of complete arrest data for 2005.
- Arrest totals are aggregates of the totals reported by agencies providing data to the UCR Program within each state.
- Any comparison of statistics in this table should take into consideration variances in arrest practices, particularly for Part II crimes. (Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting defines the UCR Program's Part II offenses.)
Arrest information for 2005
- Because of changes in state or local agency reporting practices (updating to the National Incident-Based Reporting System), figures for Colorado (Denver), Michigan (several agenices, including Detroit), Montana, and Rhode Island are not comparable to previous years' data.
- Limited arrest data were received from Illinois. (Arrest counts presented in this table are for Chicago only.)
- For 2005, only arrest totals (with no age or gender breakdowns) are available for law enforcement agencies in Florida.
- No arrest data for 2005 were received from the District of Columbia's Metropolitan Police Department; the only agency in the District of Columbia for which 12 months of arrest data were received, the Metro Transit Police, has no attributable population.
- No arrest data for 2005 were received from the New York City Police Department.
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.
