Supplementary notes

* The source only includes data for metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) where at least 75 percent of the agencies within the MSA reported data and for which the principal city/cities submitted 12 months of complete data for 2019. Accordingly, the following large MSAs are not included: New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, St Louis, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Indianapolis.

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

Rape, as defined in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, is the penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim. (This includes the offenses of rape, sodomy, and sexual assault with an object as converted from data submitted via the National Incident-Based Reporting System.)
