of Persons Under 15, 18, 21, and 25 Years of Age, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in cities in 2007 and, of those persons, the number arrested within the following age groups: Under 15, Under 18, Under 21, and Under 25 years. In addition, the table shows the percentage that each age group comprises of the total number of persons arrested for each offense.
- City law enforcement agencies are defined as all agencies within Population Groups I–VI. (See Area Definitions.)
- These data represent the number of persons arrested; however, some persons may be arrested more than once during a year. Therefore, the statistics in this table could, in some cases, represent multiple arrests of the same person.
The data used in creating this table were from all city law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 2007.
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.
