The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This 2-year trend table provides the number of males and females arrested in cities in 2005 and 2006 and the percent change when the data for these 2 years are compared. The table also furnishes a breakdown of these data by gender for juveniles (persons under age 18).
- 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 both 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 for city jurisdictions by applying the 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data. Similarly, the FBI estimated 2005 population figures for city jurisdictions by applying the 2005 state growth rates to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data. The 2005 state growth rate was based on the difference between the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2004 revised population estimates and 2005 provisional population estimates.
