Crime in the United States
Offense and Population Percent Distribution by Region, 2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- 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.
- This table represents the 2006 geographical distribution of estimated offenses and population.
- The UCR Program does not have sufficient data to estimate arson offenses.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies participating 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 calculated 2006 state growth rates using revised 2005 state/national population estimates and 2006 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 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data.
