Supplementary notes

Due to the FBI's transition to a new crime reporting system, not all law enforcement agencies submitted crime data in 2021 and 2022. As a result, figures may not accurately reflect the total number of crimes.

The murder and nonnegligent homicides that occurred as a result of the events of September11, 2001 are not included.

In the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Violent crimes are defined in the UCR Program as those offenses which involve force or threat of force.

The data from previous years can be accessed at the Uniform Crime Reports section on the Website of the FBI.
