Arrests, by Age, 2011

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

General comments

  • This table provides the number of persons arrested nationwide in 2011.  These data are broken down by age of the arrestee and include the percent distribution of arrests by offense type.
  • 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 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.
