Table 64, Data Declaration
Arrests, Suburban Areas, by Age, 2011
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
- This table provides the reported number of arrests in suburban areas in 2011. These data are broken down by age of the arrestee and include the percent distribution of arrests by offense type.
- Suburban area law enforcement agencies are defined as all agencies within a currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Area, excluding those agencies that cover principal cities as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. (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 suburban area 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.
