Figures displayed for respective years refer to crimes which became known to and were processed by police, including attempts threatened with a penalty and drug-related offences processed by customs. Statistical records follows submissions to the prosecutor's office (baseline statistic).

* According to the source, population figures for 2013 were based on the 2011 census. Therefore, the numbers for these years cannot be fully compared to previous years (population figures for previous years are based on earlier censuses, e.g. the 1987 census for West Germany or the resident registry for 1990 in East Germany).

Until 1990: former German federal states
1991 to 1992: former German federal states with all of Berlin
From 1993: the whole German federal territory (including the new 5 German federal states).

Figures for the years preceding 1986 were retrieved from earlier BKA (Bundeskriminalamt, Federal Criminal Police Office).

Figures have been rounded.
