Number and Percent Change, 2005-2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides an analysis of the crimes of murder, forcible rape, robbery, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft reported by agencies that furnished property/circumstance data. The table lists the number of these offenses reported in 2006 and the percentage change in the number of these offenses when compared with data for 2005.
- This table provides additional details for the following offenses:
- Robbery and burglary (percent distribution by location and average dollar value of items taken).
- Larceny-theft (percent distribution by larceny type and average dollar value of items taken).
- Motor vehicle theft (average dollar value of items taken).
- The offense of aggravated assault is not included in this table. In the UCR Program, the taking of money or property in connection with an assault is reported as robbery.
- The data source from which the FBI derives this table does not include arson.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting at least 6 months of complete property/circumstance data for 2006.
- The FBI computes offense totals for the crimes of murder and forcible rape. Based on supplemental data supplied by law enforcement, the FBI computes offense totals and value lost totals for the crimes of robbery, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft.
- The percent distribution statistics are based on the offense totals for the crimes of robbery, burglary, and larceny-theft.
- The FBI derives trends by comparing statistics from agencies with at least 6 common months of complete data reports for 2005 and 2006.
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 by applying the 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data.
