Additional Information About Selected Offenses
by Population Group, 2006-2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This 2-year trend table provides the 2006 and 2007 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 change between these 2 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 2006 and 2007.
- 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
2Includes state police to which no population is attributed.
For the 2007 population estimates used in this table, the FBI computed
individual rates of growth from one year to the next for every city/town
and county using 2000 decennial population counts and 2001 through 2006
population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. Each agency’s rates of
growth were averaged; that average was then applied and added to its 2006
Census population estimate to derive the agency’s 2007 population estimate.
