Ten-Year Arrest Trends, Totals, 2002–2011

The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.

General comments

  • This 10-year trend table provides the number of persons arrested in 2002 and 2011 and the percent change when the data for these 2 years are compared.  The table furnishes a breakdown of these data by juveniles (persons under age 18) and adults.
  • These data represent the number of persons arrested; however, some persons may be arrested more than once during a year.  Therefore, the statistics in this table could, in some cases, represent multiple arrests of the same person.

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for both 2002 and 2011.

Population estimation

The FBI calculated 2011 state growth rates using the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 decennial state/national population figures and 2011 provisional state/national population estimates.  The FBI then estimated population figures for city jurisdictions by applying the 2011 state growth rate to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau data.

Population estimates for 2002 are based on the percent change in the state population from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2000 decennial population counts and 2002 provisional estimates.
