Table 59, Data Declaration
Arrests, Nonmetropolitan Counties, Persons Under 15, 18, 21, and 25 Years of Age, 2011
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- This table provides the number of persons arrested in nonmetropolitan counties in 2011 and, of those persons, the number arrested within the following age groups: Under 15, Under 18, Under 21, and Under 25. In addition, the table shows the percentage that each age group comprises of the total number of persons arrested for each offense.
- The Nonmetropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located outside 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 nonmetropolitan 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.
