Supplementary notes

Rates are the number of reported offenses per 100,000 of the population.

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.

*Due to the FBI's transition to a new crime reporting system in 2021, only 11,794 of 18,806 law enforcement agencies in the U.S. reported crime data to the FBI in that year. For 2022, only 15,726 of 18,888 participating law enforcement agencies submitted crime data. As a result, figures may not accurately reflect the total crime rate.
