by Age, 2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in nonmetropolitan counties in 2006 for the 29 offenses for which the UCR Program collects arrest data. These data are broken down by age of the arrestee and include the percent distribution of arrests by offense type.
- The Nonmetropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located outside currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (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 nonmetropolitan county law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 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 counties by applying the 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data.
