by Age, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
- This table provides the number of arrests in suburban areas in 2007
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.
- 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
- 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 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.
