Table 65, Data Declaration
Arrests, Suburban Areas, Persons Under 15, 18, 21, and 25 Years of Age, 2011
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
- This table provides the reported number of persons arrested in suburban areas 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.
- 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.
