Estimated Number of Arrests
United States, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
This table provides the estimated number of persons arrested for 29 separate
UCR offenses for the United States in 2007.
The data used in creating the estimates for this table were from all law
enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 2007.
- The arrest totals presented are national estimates based on the arrest
statistics of all law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest
data to the UCR Program.
- The estimated total number of arrests in this table is the sum of estimated
arrest volumes for 28 offenses, not including suspicion.
- The arrest data for each of the individual offenses in this table is
the sum of the estimated volume for that offense within each of the eight
population groups. (See Area
- The FBI calculated each of the eight population group’s arrest estimates
by dividing the reported 12-month volume figures (as shown in Table 31)
by the contributing agencies’ jurisdictional populations. The resulting
figure was then multiplied by the total population for each population
group as estimated by the Program.
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.
