of Persons Under 15, 18, 21, and 25 Years of Age, 2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in suburban areas in 2006 and of
those persons, the number arrested within the following age groups: Under 15,
Under 18, Under 21, and Under 25. In addition, the table shows the percentage that
each age group comprises of the total of persons arrested for each offense.
- Suburban area law enforcement agencies are defined as all agencies within a
currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Area, excluding those agencies that
cover principal cities as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. (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 suburban area law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete 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 jurisdictions in suburban areas by applying the 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data.
