Arrests, Nonmetropolitan Counties, by Age, 2012

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

General comments

  • This table provides the number of persons arrested in nonmetropolitan counties in 2012. These data are broken down by age of the arrestee and include the percent distribution of arrests by offense type.
  • The Nonmetropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located outside currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (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.

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all nonmetropolitan county law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 2012.

Population estimation

The FBI calculated 2012 state growth rates using the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011 and 2012 provisional state/national population estimates. The FBI then estimated population figures for city and county jurisdictions by applying the 2012 state growth rate to the updated 2011 U.S. Census Bureau data.
