Number and Rate of Arrests, by Geographic Region, 2005Download Data Declaration
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
This table provides the number of arrests and the arrest rate per 100,000 inhabitants for the four geographic regions of the United States and for the Nation as a whole.
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 U.S. Census Bureau has established the four regions of the United States along with their nine subdivisions which are used by the UCR Program compiling the Nation's crime data. The following table lists the 50 states and the District of Columbia arranged according to the regions and divisions of the United States.
The FBI calculated 2005 state growth rates using revised 2004 state/national population estimates and 2005 provisional state/national population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. The FBI then estimated population figures for the Nation by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
