by State, 2007
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
- This table provides arrest data for 29 separate UCR offenses for each
state for 2007. The table provides both total arrests and arrests of
juveniles (persons under the age of 18).
- 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 law enforcement
agencies that submitted 12 months of arrest data for 2007.
- Arrest totals are aggregates of the totals reported by agencies providing
data to the UCR Program within each state.
- Any comparison of statistics in this table should take into consideration
variances in arrest practices, particularly for Part II crimes. (Offenses
in Uniform Crime Reporting defines the UCR Program’s Part II offenses.)
Arrest information for 2007
- Limited arrest data were received from Illinois. (Arrest counts presented
in this table are for Chicago and Rockford only.)
- The Minnesota state UCR Program does not comply with national UCR
Program guidelines for reporting forcible rape offense and arrest counts.
Their offense and arrest counts include male victims and male arrestees
arrested for forcibly raping males. As a result, their figures and totals
for forcible rape, violent crime, and total all classes are not published
in this table. Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, are exceptions to
this in that they comply with UCR guidelines; consequently, these two
agencies have forcible rape figures included in this table.
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.
