Arrests, Suburban Areas, by Sex, 2012

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

General comments

  • This table provides the reported number of males and females arrested in suburban areas in 2012. The table furnishes breakdowns for each offense and supplies a percent distribution of males and females arrested among all offense types.
  • 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.

Methodology

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

Population estimation

The FBI calculated 2012 states 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.
