Table 54, Data Declaration
Arrests, Metropolitan Counties, by Sex, 2011
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides the number of males and females arrested in metropolitan counties in 2011. The table furnishes breakdowns of these data for each offense and supplies the percent distribution of males and females arrested among all offense types.
- The Metropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located within currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (See Area Definitions.)
- 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.
The data used in creating this table were from all metropolitan county law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 2011.
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.
