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. Due to changes in the state/local agency's reporting practices, figures are not comparable to previous years' data.
