Offenses Reported to Law Enforcement, by State by City 100,000 and over in Population

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

General comment

This table provides the number of offenses known to law enforcement for the first 6 months of 2010 and 2011 in cities with populations of 100,000 and over.

Methodology

  • Data from law enforcement agencies whose resident population falls below 100,000 are published in this table for 2 consecutive years. After which, if the population remains below 100,000, the agency’s data are no longer published in this table.
  • When the FBI determines that an agency’s data collection methodology does not comply with the national UCR Program’s guidelines, the number of offenses are not included in the table and the discrepancy is explained in a footnote.
  • The FBI does not publish arson data in this table unless the UCR Program receives data from the agency for the first 6 months of the year.

Population methodology

The population figures are the 2010 decennial counts from the U.S. Census Bureau.
