Percent Change, for Consecutive Years

The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.

General comment

This table provides the percent change in offenses known to law enforcement for the Nation for consecutive years from 2007 through 2011.

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from law enforcement agencies submitting 6 or more common months of offense reports from 2007 through 2011. When the FBI determines certain variables have created unusual fluctuations in the data, those data are excluded from the trend tabulations.
