Additional Information About Selected Offenses
by Population Group, 2005-2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This two-year trend table provides the 2005 and 2006 breakdowns (such as weapons, type of entry, attempts, and property types) for the offenses of forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and arson; and the percent changes in data between these two years.
- Suburban area includes law enforcement agencies in cities with less than 50,000 inhabitants and county law enforcement agencies that are within a Metropolitan Statistical Area.
- Suburban area excludes all metropolitan agencies associated with a principal city. The agencies associated with suburban areas also appear in other groups within 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 with breakdowns for 2005 and 2006.
- In calculating trends, the UCR Program includes only common reported months for individual agencies.
The UCR Program uses the following population group designations:
||250,000 and more
||100,000 to 249,999
||50,000 to 99,999
||25,000 to 49,999
||10,000 to 24,999
||Less than 10,000
|VIII (Nonmetropolitan County)
|IX (Metropolitan County)
1Includes universities and colleges to which no population is attributed.
2Includes state police to which no population is attributed.
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.
