In the United States several organizations are responsible for obtaining and publishing crime statistics on a yearly basis. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), being one of them, publishes crime stats annually. These FBI's Uniform Crime Reports represents crimes reported to the police. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BOJ) represents crimes not reported to the police in their annual National Crime Victimization Survey.
The latest reports from the FBI indicate a decrease in crime in the U.S. for the first half of 2011 when compared to the same period in 2010. The number of violent crimes (murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) in the first 6 months of 2011 decreased by 6.4% overall. The number of property crimes (burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) in the first 6 months decreased by 3.7 %. Arson, even though considered a property crime, was not included in this category. Alone, the figures show that arson decreased 8.6% when compared to 2010 figures from the same time period.
It's important to note that the likelihood of committing a crime or becoming a victim
of one depends on several demographic characteristics as well as location. Cities
automatically have more crime because of the density of population. Men, minorities,
younger citizens, and the financially burdened are more likely to become victims of
crime as well as the ones being the ones who commit them. This is largely due to the
fact that less affluent people generally live in economically disadvantaged areas or
neighborhoods that are susceptible to a higher crime rates. America's crime rate is
determined by the number of offenses being reported per 100,000 people.
Violent crimes including murder, forcible rape, robbery,
and aggravated assault decreased by 6.4% in the first
6 months of the year.
Property crimes, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft, in the first 6 months decreased by 3.7%.
