of Persons Under 15, 18, 21, and 25 Years of Age, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in nonmetropolitan
counties in 2007 and, of those persons, the number arrested within the
following age groups: Under 15, Under 18, Under 21, and Under 25 years.
In addition, the table shows the percentage that each age group comprises
of the total number of persons arrested for each offense.
- The Nonmetropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions
covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located outside currently
designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (See Area
- 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 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.
