by State, Type of Weapon, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
- This table provides the type of weapons used in robbery offenses. The
data are based on aggregated data from agencies within each state for
which weapon information was reported to the FBI. The table includes
the number of agencies that submitted data by state and the population
covered by those agencies.
- The FBI received limited weapon data from Illinois.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement
agencies that submitted complete reports for 12 months in 2007.
- The weapon totals are aggregated from all robbery offense data for
which the FBI received weapon breakdowns.
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.
