Number and Percent Change, 2006-2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
- This table provides an analysis of the crimes of murder, forcible rape,
robbery, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. The table
lists the number of these offenses reported in 2007 and the percentage
change in the number of these offenses when compared with 2006 data.
- This table provides additional details for the following offenses:
- Robbery and burglary (percent distribution by average dollar value
- Larceny-theft (percent distribution and average dollar value by
- Motor vehicle theft (average dollar value of vehicles taken).
- The offense of aggravated assault is not included in this table. In
the UCR Program, the taking of money or property in connection with an
assault is reported as robbery.
- Information regarding the average value of property damage due to arson
can be found in Arson Table 2.
- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement
agencies submitting at least 6 months of complete property/circumstance
data for 2007.
- The FBI uses offense totals for the crimes of murder and forcible rape,
and then, based on supplemental data supplied by law enforcement, the
FBI computes value lost totals for the crimes of robbery, burglary, larceny-theft,
and motor vehicle theft.
- The percent distribution statistics are based on the offense totals
for the crimes of robbery, burglary, and larceny-theft.
- The FBI derives trends by comparing statistics from agencies with at
least 6 common months of complete data reports for 2006 and 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.
