Table 2, Data Declaration
Percent Change, by Region
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
This table provides the percent change in offenses known to law enforcement, by region, for 2010 and 2011.
The data used in creating this table were from law enforcement agencies submitting 6 or more common months of offense reports for 2010 and 2011. When the FBI determines certain variables have created unusual fluctuations in the data, those data are excluded from the trend tabulations.
The U.S. Census Bureau has established the four regions of the United States, which are used by the UCR Program in compiling the Nation’s crime data. The following table lists the 50 states and the District of Columbia arranged according to the regions of the United States.
District of Columbia
