FOREWORD 

Crime is one of the gravest social problems of our time. It strikes at the 
very heart of social organization by breeding fear, distrust, and uncertamty. 
The full extent of lawlessness is not known, but that which comes to the 
attention of the police antl that which is personally experienced and perceived 
indisputably threaten the well-being of us all in every aspect of our daily lives. 

The Uniform Crune Reporting Progi'am is an attempt to measure, 
meaningfully, the occurrence of crime in the United States. While the Program 
is designed for use by the law enforcement profession, it has also become a 
yardstick for a public evaluation of the relative levels of criminal activity 
prevailing in the Nation. 

Although the Program is not a perfect benchmark for gaugmg crime at a 
particular place and time, it does represent a valid approach toward this 
assessment. Furthermore, it is a disciplined effort with more than 46 years of 
experience which enhances the orderliness so fundamental to sound data 
collection. 

Essentially, the Program collects as much data concerning the occurrence 
of certain root or Index offenses as are known to the overwhelmmg majority of 
United States law enfoixement agencies. It then estimates the probable total 
volume of these offenses had there been complete reporting of them throughout 
the Nation. Having all law enforcement agencies in the United States partici- 
pating fully m the Program would, of course, make unnecessary any estimation 
process. However, the complex and independent structure of the Nation's law 
enforcement network has made this goal elusive even to a program of the size 
and duration of the Uniform Crime Reports. With the development of sub- 
sidiary state Uniform Crime Reporting Programs, intended for each of the 
50 states, the complete, nationwide collection of offenses known to law enforce- 
ment nears fulfillment. 

Whatever are the uses or whoever are the users of criminal justice data, 
the Uniform Crime Reports provide the only comprehensive, periodic ac- 
counting available of reported and discovered crime in the United States. 
Accordingly, they can serve constructively to organize public opinion against 
lawlessness and marshal our resources to combat crime.

Crime Factors 

Crime is a social problem and the concern of the entire conmninity. The 
law enforcement effort is limited to factors within its control. 

Uniform Crime Reports gives a nationwide view of crime based on police 
statistics contributed by local law enforcement agencies. The factors which 
cause crime are many and vary from place to place throughout the country. 
The reader ol this publication is cautioned against comparing statistical infor- 
mation ol inchvidual communities solely based on a similarity in their population 
counts. Po])ulation is only one of many factors which must be considered in a 
comparative study of crime. Some of the conditions which affect the volume 
and type of crime that occurs from place to place are briefly outlined as follows: 
Density and size of the community population and the metropolitan 

area of which it is a part. 
Composition of the population with reference particularly to age, 

sex, and race. 
Economic status and mores of the population. 
Stability of population, including commuters, seasonal, and other 

transient types. 
Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 
Educational, recreational, and religious characteristics. 
Effective strength of the police force. 
Standards of apjjointments to the local police force. 
Policies of the prosecuting officials. 
Attitudes and policies of the courts and corrections. 
Relationships and attitudes of law enforcement and the community. 
Afhninistrative and investigative efficiency of law enforcement, 

including degree of adherence to crime reporting standards. 
Oganization and cooperation of adjoining and overlapping police 
jurisdictions.

SUMMARY 



UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

Within the framework of the Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program, the Federal Bureau of In- 
vestigation (FBI) serves as a national clearing- 
house for the crime statistics of over 13,000 law 
enforcement agencies. The contributmg agencies 
are responsible for compiling and submitting their 
crime reports to the FBI, either directly or through 
their state Program. 

As of 1976, the law enforcement agencies active 
in the Uniform Crime Reporting Program repre- 
sented 98 percent of the United States' population 
living in the Standard Metropolitan Statistical 
Areas, 94 percent of the population in other cities, 
and 89 percent of the rural population. The com- 
bined coverage accounts for 96 percent of the total 
national population, as estimated by the Bureau 
of the Census. 

Accordingly, the Uniform Crime Reports pro- 
vide a periodic, nationwide assessment of crime 
not available elsewhere in the criminal justice 
system. 

Historical Background 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is the 
outgrowth of a need for a national and uniform 
compilation of law enforcement statistics. A vol- 
untary national Program of collecting crime counts 
was initiated in 19.30 by the Committee on Uni- 
form Crime Records of the International Associa- 
tion of Chiefs of Police (lACP). In that same 
year, the FBI was authorized by the Congress of 
the United States to serve as the national clearing- 
house for statistical information on crime. 

Crime reports are obtained from law enforce- 
ment agencies throughout the Nation based on 
uniform classifications and procedures of report- 
ing. Information regarding crime is readily avail- 
able to law enforcement for offenses, arrests, and 
the value of stolen and recovered property. To a 
much lesser degree, data concerning prosecutions, 
convictions, and confinements are obtained by 



law enforcement agencies in cooperation with 
other elements of the criminal justice system. 

In an effort to provide as complete a picture of 
crime in the United States as possible, the Com- 
mittee on Uniform Crime Records of the lACP 
chose to obtain data on offenses that became 
known to police. Greater numbers of these data 
were available than in any other category of 
reportable crime information. A meaningful over- 
view of crime was available through examination 
of seven offenses which were selected because of 
their seriousness, frecpiency of occurrence, and 
likelihood of being reported to police. These 
offenses, known as the Crime Index offenses, are 
murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, 
burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. 

To provide for uniformity nationwide in the 
reporting of these offenses, standardized defini- 
tions were adopted. This standardization was nec- 
essary to overcome the variations in definitions of 
criminal offenses in the states and localities 
throughout the country. Reporting agencies are 
required to interpret local criminal acts and law 
violations in the context of these definitions prior 
to submission of their counts to the FBI. The 
Uniform Crime Reporting definitions of these 
offenses are set forth elsewhere in this publication. 
Because of the variance in punishment for the 
same offenses among the state codes, there is no 
possibility in a program such as this to distinguish 
between felony or misdemeanor crimes. 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records, 
lACP, continues to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the FBI concerning the operation of this Pro- 
gram. In this connection, the lACP plays an 
active and effective part in quality control through 
surveys of police records and crime reporting sys- 
tems. Additionally, the Program employs profes- 
sional statistical analysts whose responsibihties 
include the development and perfection of logical 
procedures to authenticate the crime estimation 
effort. 



The National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) in 
June 1966, estabHshed a Committee on Uniform 
Crime Reporting to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the NSA membership and the national Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program. This Committee ac- 
tively encourages sheriffs throughout the country 
to fully participate in this important Program. 

Committees on Uniform Crime Reporting within 
state law enforcement associations are active in 
promoting interest in the Uniform Crime Report- 
ing Program, fostering widespread and more intel- 
ligent use of uniform crime statistics, and lending 
assistance to contributors when the need exists. 

The FBI continues to actively assist individual 
states in the development of statewide programs 
of police statistics compatible with the national 
Program. These state statistical programs provide 
the advantage of increased coverage of law en- 
forcement agencies due to state mandatory re- 
porting requirements. The state systems also can 
provide direct and frequent service to law enforce- 
ment agencies in assuring completeness and quality 
of information provided by them. Through coordi- 
nation by the state data collection agency, infor- 
mation is more readily available for the use of 
the state. The collection and reporting machinery 
for the national Program also is streamlined 
substantially. 

With the development of state Uniform Crime 
Reporting Programs, the FBI ceases collection of 
data directly from individual law enforcement 
agencies within the state. Completed information 
from these agencies is forwarded to the national 
Program through the state Uniform Crime Re- 
porting collection agency. There are 41 states 
presently operating Uniform Crime Reporting 
Programs. Additionally, other states are in various 
stages of developing their own Uniform Crime 
Reporting Programs. The conditions under which 
these systems are developed provide for consist- 
ency and comparability in the data submitted to 
the national Program. They also permit regular 
and timely reporting of the national crime data. 
These conditions are: 

(1) The State Program must conform to the 
national Uniform Crime Reports standards, defini- 
tions, and information required. These require- 
ments, of course, do not prohibit the state from 
collecting other statistical data beyond the 
national collection. (2) The state criminal justice 
agency must have a proven, effective, mandatory, 
statewide Program and have instituted acceptable 
quality control procedures. (3) Coverage within 



the state by a state agency must be, at least, 
equal to that attained by national Uniform Crime 
Reports. (4) The state agency must have adequate 
field staff assigned to conduct audits and to assist 
contributing agencies in record practices and 
crime reporting procedures. (5) The state agency 
must furnish to the FBI all of the detailed data 
regularly collected by the FBI in the form of 
duplicate returns, computer printouts, and/or 
magnetic tapes. (6) The state must have the 
proven capability (tested over a period of time) 
to supply all the statistical data required in time 
to meet national Uniform Crime Reports publica- 
tion deadlines. Additionally, the FBI will continue 
its internal procedures of editing and reviewing 
individual agency reports for both completeness 
and quality; will continue to have direct contact 
with individual contributors within the state 
where necessary in connection with crime re- 
porting matters, but will coordinate such contacts 
with the state agency; and upon request, will 
continue its training programs within the state 
with respect to police records and crime reporting 
procedures. For mutual benefit, these training 
sessions will be coordinated with the state agency. 
Should circumstances develop whereby the state 
agency cannot provide the data required by the 
national Program, the FBI will reinstitute a 
direct collection of Uniform Crime Reports from 
law enforcement agencies within the state. 

Objectiye of Uniform Crime Reporting 

The fundamental objective of the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program is to produce a reliable 
set of criminal statistics on a national basis for 
use in law enforcement administration, operation, 
and management. These statistics are also intended 
for the use and information of other criminal 
justice professionals, legislators, and scholars 
who have an interest in the crime problem. At 
the same time, this information is important as a 
reference source for the public as an indicator ' 
of the level of criminality in our society. 

Reporting Procedures 

Law enforcement agencies (police, sheriflFs, and 
state police) report the number of offenses that , 
become known to them, on a monthly basis, in the 
following crime categories: murder and nonnegli- 
gent manslaughter, manslaughter by negligence, ! 
forcible rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny- | 
theft, and motor vehicle theft. This count is taken ( 
from a record of all complaints of crime received 



by the law enforcement ag:ency from victims or 
other sources, and/or that discovered by officers. 
These crimes are the Part I offenses in the Pro- 
gram. The Part II offenses, for which only data 
concerning persons arrested and charged are 
collected, encompass all other crimes. 

Whenever complaints of crime are determined 
thi'Oiigh investigation to be unfounded or false, 
they are eliminated from the actual count. The 
number of "actual offenses known" in the Part I, 
Crime Index categories is reported to the FBI 
whether or not anyone is arrested for the crime, 
the stolen property is recovered, or prosecution is 
undertaken. Law enforcement agencies, on a 
monthly basis, report the total number of these 
crimes which they clear, either by arrest or excep- 
tional means. A separate count of Index crimes 
cleared which involve the arrest of offenders under 
the age of 18 is shown. The value of property 
stolen and recovered during the month is also 
reported for Index Crimes. 

Arrests are reported monthly for both Part I 
and Part II offenses, excluding traffic violations, 
bj' crime category and include age, sex, and race 
of each person arrested. Also, a report is submitted 
on an annual basis, by crime classification, con- 
cerning the number of persons formally charged 
and the disposition of such charges. 

The number of law enforcement officers assault- 
ed or killed by type of duty assignment, type of 
weapon used, the circumstances of the assault, 
and whether the victim officer sustained injury is 
collected monthly. Other law enforcement employ- 
ee data, specifically encompassing the number of 
full-time sworn officers and other personnel, are 
reported annually. This information is collected 
as of October 31 of each calendar year. 

Although the responsibility of compilmg and 
submitting crime reports rests on the individual 
police agency, the FBI endeavors to maintain 
data validity by providing training seminars and 
instructional materials in Uniform Crime Report- 
ing procedures. All contributing agencies are sup- 
plied with the Uniform Crime Reporting Hand- 
book which outlines, in detail, procedures for 
classifying and scoring offenses. The Handbook 
illustrates and discusses the monthly and annual 
reporting forms, as well as the tally forms which 
facilitate the periodic tabulation of data. 

The Handbook is not the sole method to insure 
data quality. The FBI schedules Uniform Crime 
Reporting seminars and workshops throughout 
the country for law enforcement personnel. FBI 



personnel are utilized to enlist the cooperation of 
new contributors and to explain the purpose of 
this Program and the methods of assembling 
information for reporting. When reporting prob- 
lems exist in the individual agencies and remedial 
efforts through correspondence do not help, FBI 
Headquarters personnel may be directed to visit 
the contributor to aid them in resolving their 
problems. 

A good record system is an essential base for 
accurate crime reporting. The FBI makes avail- 
able, upon request, to an.y law enforcement agency 
the Manual of Police Records, which can serve as 
a guide in the establishment or modification of a 
sound police record sj'stem. 

To enhance communication among Program 
participants, the publication of the Uniform 
Crime Reporting "Newsletter" was initiated. 
This "Newsletter" is utilized to explain revisions 
in the Program, as well as to present information 
and instructional material to assist contributors. 

Editing Procedures 

When the individual reports are submitted to 
the FBI, data reliability continues as a primary 
concern. Issuing instructions and conducting 
training seminars do not complete the role of the 
FBI. Each incoming report is examined not only 
for arithmetical accuracy but also, as a possible 
indication of error, for deviations from the ex- 
periences of similar agencies. 

Variations in reported crime levels and ratios 
established by previous reports, may indicate 
possible incompleteness in reporting or changes 
in reporting procedures. Necessary arithmetic 
adjustments or unusual variations are brought to 
the attention of the submitting agencj^ by corre- 
spondence. Correspondence with contributors and 
state Uniform Crime Reporting Programs is the 
principal tool for supervision of quality. Not only 
are individual reports studied, but also, periodic 
trends for individual rejjorting units are prepared. 
As a standard procedure, crime trends for each 
reporting agency are analyzed five times a year by 
the FBI. Any significant increase or decrease is 
made the subject of a special inquiry to the con- 
tributing agency. In 1976, for example, approxi- 
mately 4, .300 contributing agencies were queried 
as to the reason for significant increases or de- 
creases in pertinent crime classifications. The 
communications containing this inquiry spe- 
cifically directs attention to possible changes in 
records or reporting procedures. When it is found 



that crime reporting procedures are in part re- 
sponsible for the difference in the level of crime, 
the figures for specific crime categories or totals 
are excluded from the trend tabulations. 

Variations from desired reporting standards 
which cannot be resolved are brought to the 
attention of the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records of the lACP. The Conmaittee 'may 
designate a representative to make a personal visit 
to the agency to cooperatively assist in a needed 
authentication of records and reporting methods. 

Regardless of the extent of the statistical 
editing processes used by the FBI, the accuracy 
of the data assembled under this Program depends 
primarily on the efforts exerted by each contributor 
to meet the necessary standards of reporting. For 
this reason, the FBI is not in a position to vouch 
for the validity of individual agency reports. 

Reporting Area 

Presentation of crime data by areas, as used in 
this publication, follows as closely as practical 
the definitions used by the Office of Management 
and Budget and the Bureau of the Census for 
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas and other 
cities. There is, however, some deviation insofar 
as the rural area is concerned. For crime reporting 
purposes, rural is generally the imincorporated 
portion of a county outside of Standard Metro- 
politan Statistical Areas. In addition, statistics 
are presented in certain tables relative to "subur- 
ban" areas. A suburban area consists of cities with 
population less than 50,000 together with counties 
which are within a Standard MetropoUtan Statis- 
tical Area. In this use of suburban, the major 
core city is, of course, excluded. The suburban 
area concept is used because of the particular 
crime conditions which exist in these communities 
surroundmg the major core cities. 

A Standard Metropohtan Statistical Area, gen- 
erally, is made up of a core city with a population 
of 50,000 or more inhabitants and the surrounduig 
county or counties which share certain metropoli- 
tan characteristics. In New England, "town" 
instead of "county" is used to describe Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Areas. These towns do 
not coincide generally with estabUshed reporting 
units; therefore, metropohtan state economic 
areas in New England are used in these areas' 
tabulations since they encompass an entire county 
or counties. Standard MetropoUtan Statistical 
Areas, as used in this publication, make up 



approximately 73 percent of the total United 
States' population. 

"Other cities" are urban places outside Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Areas. Most of these 
places are incorporated and comprise 12 percent 
of the 1976 population. Riu"al areas are made up 
of the unincorporated portions of counties outside 
of urban places and Standard Metropolitan 
Statistical Areas and represent 15 percent of our 
national population. As a general rule, sheriffs, 
county police, and many state police report on 
crimes committed within the limits of the counties 
but outside cities, while local police report on 
crime committed within the city Umits (urban 
places) . 

The Crime Totals 

Communities not represented by crime reports 
are relatively few. An examination of the tables 
found in this document show 1976 crime totals 
for the Index classifications and the extent of 
coverage of the data for a particular table. The 
FBI conducts a continuing program to further 
reduce the unreported areas. The continuing 
development and implementation of mandatory 
state Uniform Crime Reporting Programs, hope- 
fully, will eliminate imreported areas. 

Offense Estimation 

Due to the voluntary natiu^e of the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program, it is possible that a 
police agency would submit fewer than the re- 
quired twelve months of offense reports. Tables 
one through five of this publication represent total 
crime in the United States; therefore, offense 
counts here are estimated for agencies which fail 
to submit complete reports for the year. Offense 
estimation occurs within each of three areas: 
Standard MetropoUtan Statistical Areas, other 
cities, and rural areas. It is assumed that the 
unreported portion of these areas has the same 
proportionate crime experience as that for which 
reports were received. Estimates for unreported 
areas are based on the reported crime experience 
of similar areas within a state. 

Crime Trends 

Crime data for trends are homogeneous to the 
extent that figures from same reporting units, 
on the basis of population, are used for each 
of the periods tabulated. In all trend tabulations, 
only those reporting units are used which have 
provided comparable data for the period under 



consideration. National, geographic, and area 
trends are alwaj's established on the basis of two 
consecutive years. Exclusions from trend com- 
putations are made when figures from a reporting 
unit are obviously inaccurate for any period 
or when it is ascertained that unusual fluctuations 
are due to such variables as improved records 
procedures. 

Year-to-year trends in Uniform Crime Reports 
are valid and may be used to reasonablj^ establish 
long-term trends, as well as to reestimate crime 
volume and reconstruct crime trends for prior 
years. It can be assumed, logically, that the 
current year is the most complete in terms of 
volume. Trend or percent change as established 
by comparable units for each two-year period 
is then applied as the basis for reestimating the 
volume of crime for prior years. 

On the other hand, crime rate tables by state 
and Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area con- 
tain the most reliable reports available for the 
current year, and care should be exercised in any 
direct comparisions with prior issues. Changes 
in crime level may have been due in part to 
improved reporting or records procedures. 

Population Data 

In comjniting crime rates by state, geographic 
division, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, 
and the Nation, population estimates released by 
the Bureau of the Census on July 1, 1976, were 
used. Population estimates for individual cities 
and counties were prepared using special census 
reports, state sources and estimates, commercial 
sources, and extrapolation where no other estimate 
was available. Complete 1976 population esti- 
mates for individual cities and counties were used 
from 15 states, while official sources in other states 
provided limited data which were used selectively. 
The estimated United States population increase 
in 1976 was 1 percent over 1975 according to the 
figures published by the Bureau of the Census. 

Recent Developments in Uniform Crime Reporting 

During 1974, the Uniform Crime Records Com- 
mittee of the lACP and the Committee on Uni- 
form Crime Reporting of the NSA decided to ex- 
pand the collection of arrest data for narcotic 
drug violations. After considerable research into 
the collection of these data, the Committees de- 



cided to discontinue the use of the term Narcotic 
Drug Laws to describe these offenses and replace 
it with Drug Abuse Violations. The collection for- 
mat was expanded to include the gathering of 
data on Drug Abuse Violations for the act of 
possession, as well as the sale and manufacture of 
drugs, in violation of the law. The subcategories of 
Opium or Cocaine, Marijuana, Synthetic Nar- 
cotics, and Other Dangerous Non-Narcotic 
Drugs continue in use with this revised collection 
format, which became effective in January 1976. 
Another format change, efTective in January 

1976, concerned the expanded collection of offender 
data relating to Mm-der and NonnegUgent Man- 
slaughter offenses. Under the expanded format, 
data are gathered on the age, sex, and race of the 
offender, along with the relationship of the victim 
to the offender. Supplementary homicide data 
continue to be collected on the age, sex, and race 
of the victim, the weapon used, and a brief 
statement of the circumstances surrounding the 
incident. 

The third national State Uniform Crime Re- 
porting Conference was held on May 31-June .3, 

1977, at the FBI Academy at Quantico, Virginia. 
Attending the Conference were representatives 
from all state Uniform Crime Reporting Programs; 
from law enforcement agencies developing state 
Programs within theu- respective states; and 
members of the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records of the lACP and the Uniform Crime 
Reporting Committee of the NSA. Regional 
Directors of the Law Enforcement Assistance 
Administration and representatives of lACP 
Headquarters were also in attendance. A resolu- 
tion adopted by the joint meeting of the lACP 
and NSA Committees will discontinue the collec- 
tion of disposition data on persons charged follow- 
ing the submission of 1977 Uniform Crime Re- 
ports. This does not preclude, however, the 
continued collection of disposition data by any 
agency wishing to do so. 

The joint lACP-NSA Conmaittee membership 
concluded that the present collection of disposition 
data is inadequate. It recommended that a study 
be instituted to develop a more complete and 
efficient manner for the collection of disposition 
data.

MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT MANSLAUGHTER 
DEFINITION 



Murder is defined in the Uniform Crime Reporting Program as the 
willful killing of another. The classification of this offense, as in all of 
the other Crime Index offenses, is based solely on police investigation 
as opposed to the determination of a court, medical examiner, coroner, 
jury, or other judicial body. 

Deaths caused by negligence, suicide, accident, or justifiable homi- 
cide are not included in the count for this offense classification. Attempts 
to murder or assaults to murder are scored as aggravated assaults and 
not as murder.

Volume 

In 1976, there were an estimated 18,780 murders 
committed La the United States. This number of 
murders is approximately 2 percent of the total 
violent crimes. 

An analysis of murder by month in 1976 shows 
that July had the greatest frequency of murder 
as compared to any other month of the year. 

A geographic breakdown of murder by region 
showed 42 percent of the murders occurred in the 
Southern States, 23 percent in the North Central 
States, 18 percent in the Northeastern States, 
and 17 percent in the Western States.

Trend 

The number of murders decreased 8 percent 
from 1975 to 1976. 

Regionally, the number of murder offenses in 
1976 decreased 10 percent in the Southern States, 
9 percent in the North Central States, 8 percent 
in the Northeastern States, and 5 percent in the 
Western States. 

Large core cities of 250,000 or more inhabitants 
had a 10 percent decrease in the number of 
murders in 1976 while the suburban and rural 
areas experienced decreases of 11 percent each. 

The following chart reveals an increase of 1 
percent from 1972 to 1976 in the murder counts.

Rafe 

In 1976, there were 8.8 victims of murder for 
every 100,000 inhabitants in the Nation. This 



was a decrease of 8 percent from the murder rate 
of 9.6 per 100,000 iniabitants recorded in 1975. 

The metropolitan areas reported a murder rate 
of 10 victims per 100,000 inhabitants, the rural 
areas a rate of 8 per 100,000 inhabitants, and cities 
outside metropohtan areas reported a murder 
rate of 5 per 100,000 inhabitants. 

The number of murder victims in proportion to 
population was highest in the Southern States with 
11.3 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. This is a 
decrease of 11 percent from the mur.der rate of 
that Region in 1975. In 1976, the Western States 
showed a murder rate of 8.5, a decrease of 6 per- 
cent from 1975. The North Central States had a 
rate of 7.4 which was a 9 percent decrease for 
those states. The Northeastern Region had a rate 
of 7.0, a decrease of 8 percent when compared to 
the 1975 rate. 

Nature 

The law enforcement agencies which participate 
in Uniform Crime Reporting cooperate in pro- 
viding additional information regarding homicide 
so that a more in-depth analysis of this offense 
can be made. Through a supplemental reporting 
system information is provided regarding the age, 
sex, and race of the victim and offender; the weap- 
on used in the murder; the circumstances sur- 
rounding the offense ; and the relationship between 
the victim and offender. 

The victims of murder in 1976 were male in 
approximately three out of four instances. This 
ratio of male to female victims is similar to the 
experience in the last several years. Approximately 
51 out of 100 murder victims were white, 47 were 
Negro, and 2 percent were other races. Three of 
every ten murder victims were 20 through 29 years 
of age. 

The victim and offender were identified in 
10,847 cases during 1976, where there were a 
single victim and a single offender. A study of 
these situations reveals that of 4,997 white victims, 
4,454 were murdered by white offenders and of 
5,628 Negro victims, 5,412 were murdered by 
people of the same race. 

The offender could not be identified in 3,596 of 
the murders and in the remainder of the murders 
there was a multiple situation with more than one 
victim/offender.

In 1976, firearms again predominated as the 
weapon most often used in homicide in the 
Nation. The accompanying chart illustrates a 
breakdown by type of weapon used in the com- 
mission of murder in the Nation. Firearms were 
used more frequently in the Southern States than 
in any other region with firearms used in more 
than seven of every ten murders. Nationwide, 
64 percent of the homicides were committed 
through the use of firearms and 49 percent were 



committed with handguns. In 1975, 51 percent of 
the murders were through the use of handguns. 

Cutting or stabbing weajions were used in 18 
percent of the murders in the Nation. The North- 
eastern States reported the greatest use of knives 
or cutting instruments with one out of four 
murders beiag committed with this type of 
weapon. The North Central and Southern States 
had the least incidence of use of this type of 
weapon with less than two out of every ten 
murders. Other weapons such as blunt objects, 
poisons, explosives, arson, drowning, etc. were used 
in 12 percent of the murders. In the remaining 6 
percent of the murders, personal weapons such as 
hands, fists, and feet were used. 

A comparative studj' for the past five j^ears 
shows a decrease from 66 percent of all homicides 
through use of firearms in 1972 to 64 percent of all 
homicides ia 1976. A comparative analysis of 
weapons used to commit murder for 1972 through 
1976 is shown in tabular form. 

The activities resulting in murder vary from 
arguments to felonies. Murder is largely a societal 
jDroblem beyond the control of law enforcement.

Felonious activities resulted in 20 percent of the 
murders and 8 percent were caused by suspected 
felonious activities. An analysis of the known 
felony-type murders reveal that 42 percent re- 
sulted from robbery offenses. Prostitution, com- 
mercialized vice, forcible rape, and other se.x 
offenses accounted for 8 percent of the total.

The relationship of the murder victim to the

In 1976, 27 percent of the murder victims were

the murders resulted from drunken arguments 
and 4 percent resulted from arguments over

Nationally, police continue to be successful in 
clearing or solving by arrest a greater percentage 
of homicides than any other Crime Index offense. 
In 1976, 79 percent of the homicides were solved; 
and in 1975, 78 percent of all murder offenses 
were solved. Persons under 18 years of age were

by police. 

Since 1972, the clearance rate, nationwide, in 
homicide has decreased from 82 per 100 offenses to 
79 per 100 offenses m 1976. 

Persons Arrested 

Based on reports submitted by law enforcement 
agencies, 9 percent of all persons arrested for 
murder were under 18 years of age and 43 percent 
were under 25. During the period 1972-1976, 
there was a 27 percent decrease in the number of 
persons under 18 years of age arrested for murder. 
The adult arrests increased 13 percent for murder 
offenses during this period. Numerically, the 18 
to 22 year age group had the heaviest involvement 



during 1976 with 24 percent of the total arrests 
coming from within this age group. Negroes 
made up 53 percent of the arrests for murder in 
1976. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies' reports disclose that 
71 percent of all adults arrested for murder La 
1976 were prosecuted during the year. Forty- 
eight percent of the adults prosecuted were found 
guilty as charged, and 14 percent were convicted 
on some lesser charge. The remaining won release 
by acquittal or dismissal of the charges against 
them. Of all individuals processed for murder, 7 
percent were juveniles who had their cases re- 
ferred to juvenile court jurisdiction.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 
DEFINITION 



Aggravated assault is the unlawful attack by one person upon another 
for the purpose of inflicting severe bodily injury usually accompanied 
by the use of a weapon or other means likely to produce death or serious 
bodily harm. Attempts are included since it is not necessary that an 
injury result when a gun, knife, or other weapon is used which could and 
probably would result in serious personal injury if the crime were suc- 
cessfulty completed.

In calendar year 1976, there were an estimated 
490,850 aggravated assaults in the Nation. This 
crime against the person made uj) 4 percent of the 
Crime Index offenses in 1976 and comiMised 50 
percent of the crimes of violence. Regionallj', the 
Southern States reported 35 percent of the total 
count of these crimes followed by the Western 
States with 2.3 percent, and the North Central 
and Northeastern States, each with 21 percent. 
As has been the e.xperience in previous years, the 
summer months recorded the highest frequency 
of aggravated assault during 1976.

Roie 

For each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1976, there were 229 victims of aggravated 
assault. The metropolitan areas had an aggravated 
assault rate of 255 per 100,000 inhabitants. The 
cities outside metropolitan areas had a victim 
rate of 196 per 100,000 inhabitants and the rate 



for rural areas was 128 per 100,000 inhabitants. 
The victim rate for the Nation for aggravated 
assault increased 1 percent over 1975 and 21 
percent over 1972. 

The Western States were highest with a rate 
of 294 per 100,000 followed by the Southern 
States with 252, the Northeastern States with 
208, and the North Central States 175. 

Nofurc 

In 1976, 24 percent of the serious assaults were 
committed with the use of' firearms. Knives or 
other cutting instruments were used in 23 percent 
of the assaults, 26 percent were committed with 
blunt objects or other dangerous weapons. The 
remaining assaults were with personal weapons 
such as hands, fists, and feet. A comparison 
of aggravated assault from 1972 to 1976 indicates 
that firearms as a weapon increased 16 percent; 
assaults with knives or other cutting instruments 
rose 12 percent; assaults where blunt objects or 
other dangerous weapons were used increased 
41 percent; and those aggravated assaults through 
use of personal weapons climbed 32 percent. 
The table which follows demonstrates the regional 
experience of aggravated assault in 1976 by type 
of weapon used.

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
solving 63 of each 100 cases of aggravated assault 
in 1976. This relatively high solution rate is con- 
sistent with high solution rates in other crimes 
against the person. Persons under 18 years of age 
were identified in 11 percent of these clearances. 
Due to the nature of these crimes, arrests are 
frequently made by personnel of police patrol 
units who happen upon or are called to the scene 
of an assault. This type of patrol duty is hazardous 
to the officers. Since 1967, 164 officers have lost 

13 



their lives responding to disturbance-t3'pe calls, 
which frequently involve familj- or neighborhood 
arguments. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault in 1976 increased 
40 percent over 1972. Since 1972, arrests of persons 
18 years of age and over for aggravated assault 
have increased 40 percent and arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age for this offense have increased 
42 percent. As a group, persons 21 years of age 
and over accounted for 68 percent of the arrests 
for aggravated assault in 1976 and those under 



age 21 accounted for 32 percent. Arrests of males 
outnumbered females by 7 to 1. 

Persons Charged 

Seventy out of every 100 adults arrested for 
aggravated assault in 1976 were prosecuted. Thir- 
teen percent of the adults prosecuted for this 
offense were convicted of lesser charges. Accjuittals 
and dismissals accounted for .35 percent of the 
dispositions for all jiersons charged with aggra- 
vated assault. Eighteen percent of all persons proc- 
essed were referred to juvenile court jurisdictions.

FORCIBLE RAPE 
—DEFINITION — 



Forcible rape, as defined under this Program, is the carnal knowledge 
of a female through the use of force or the threat of force. Assaults to 
commit forcible rape are also included; however, statutory rape (with- 
out force) is not counted in this category.

Volume 

During 1976, there was an estimated total of 
56,730 forcible rapes. Forcible rape continues, as 
in prior years, to comprise less than 1 percent of 
the Crime Index total. It makes up 6 percent of 
the volume of crimes of violence. When viewed 
geographically, the Southern States recorded 32 
percent of the total volume, the Western States 
reported 26 percent, the North Central States 
reported 24 percent and the Northeastern States 
reported 18 percent of the forcible rapes. 

The following chart indicates that more rapes 
occur in the summer months of the year.

Trend 

The volume of forcible rape offenses in 1976 
increased 1 percent over 1975, and 21 percent 
over 1972. During 1976, this crime occurred most 
frequently in large cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants, which accounted for 41 percent of the 
forcible rapes. Forcible rape decreased 3 percent 
in this group and increased 1 percent in the 
suburban areas surrounding the large core cities. 
The rural areas registered a 2 percent increase over 
1975. Geographically, the Western States reported 
an increase of 5 percent, followed by the Southern 
States with an increase of 3 percent. The North- 
eastern and North Central States reported 
decreases of 3 percent.

Rate 

A crime rate, in its proper perspective, is a vic- 
tim risk rate since it equates the number of crimes 



per unit of population. In 1976, 52 out of every 
100,000 females in this country were reported rape 
victims. Since 1972, the forcible rape rate has 
increased 17 percent. In calendar year 1976, the 
forcible rape rate increased less than one percent 
over 1975. 

The metropolitan areas experienced a risk rate 
of 61 victims per 100,000 females. Cities outside 
metropolitan areas experienced a risk rate of 26 
per 100,000 females and the rate in the rural areas 
was 25 per 100,000 females. Females in the Western 
States were victims of forcible rape at the rate of 
76 per 100,000. In the South this rate was 51 per 
100,000, 46 per 100,000 in the North Central 
States and 40 per 100,000 in the Northeast. 

Nature 

In 1976, 74 percent of all rape offenses were by 
force. The remainder were attempts or assaults to 
conmait forcible rape. This offense is a violent 
crime against the person, and of all the Crime 
Index offenses, law enforcement administrators 
recognize that this offense is probably one of the 
most under-reported crimes due primarily to the 
fear of victims for their assailants and the sense 
of embarrassment over the incident. As a national 
average, 19 percent of all forcible rapes reported to 
police were determined by investigation jto-^Je 
unfounded. In other words, the police established 
that no forcible rape offense or attempt to rape 
had occurred. Crime counts in this publication are 
limited to actual offenses established by police 
investigation. 

Clearances 

Of the total forcible rapes reported in 1976 to 
law enforcement, 52 percent were cleared by arrest. 
The large cities with 250,000 or more people re- 
ported a 51 percent clearance rate. The suburban 
areas of the country reported a 53 percent clear- 
ance rate while the rural areas had a 69 percent 
clearance rate. Of the total clearances for forcible 
rape, 10 percent were by the arrest of persons 
under the age of 18. 

Persons Arrested 

The grouping of males 16 to 20 years of age 
constituted the greatest concentration of arrests 
for forcible rape in 1976. Total arrests for this of- 
fense decreased two percent, while the arrests of 
persons 18 years of age and over were down one

Rate 

The 1976 rate of 196 robberies per 100,000 
inhabitants was 10 percent below the 1975 rate. 
Robbery is primarily a large cit}^ crime. Seven out 
of ten robberies in the United .States occurred in 
the cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants. 
These cities experienced 521 robberies per 100,000 
people. 

There were 255 robberies per 100,000 inhabitants 
in the metropolitan areas during 1976. The cities 
outside metropolitan areas experienced a rate of 
51 robbery offenses per 100,000 people. In the 
rural areas, the robbery rate was 21 per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Robbery occurred most frequentlj- in the North- 
eastern States where the rate was 288 per 100,000 
inhabitants. The Western States had a rate of 207, 
the North Central States 176, and the Southern 
States 140 per 100,000 people. 

No fore 

Supplemental robbery information is obtained 
from law enforcement agencies as a part of the 
monthly collection of statistical data under this 
Program. In 1976, these figures disclosed that 
nearly half of the robberies were committed on 
the street. Nationally, bank robbery offenses in- 
creased from 4,180 offenses in 1975 to 4,565 in 
1976. The average bank robbery dollar less, how- 
ever, decreased from 4,373 in 1975 to 3,190 in 1976. 

As it has been pointed out in prior issues of this 
publication, the full impact of this violent crime 
on the victim cannot be completely measured in 
terms of dollar loss alone. While the object of the 
attack is money or property, many victims of 
muggers and the strong-armed robbers, as well as 
other armed robbers, suffer serious personal injury. 
During 1976, the average value loss in each rob- 
bery incident was $338 for a total reported loss 
of $142 million. 

The 1972-1976 trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated by the following charts, show bank 
robbery has increased 74 percent. During this 
same period, gas or service station holdups have 
increased 11 percent; chain store robberies in- 
creased 50 percent; and holdups of other com- 
mercial or business establishments rose 6 percent. 
During the 1972-1976 time period, street robberies 
increased 6 percent and residential robberies in- 
creased 16 percent. 

In 1976, 43 percent of all robberies were com- 
mitted through the use of firearms, 13 percent 
were by the use of knives or cutting instruments

Clearances 

In 1976, law enforcement agencies were success- 
ful in clearing 27 percent of the robbery offenses 
reported. Eighty -four percent of the robberies 
which were cleared by arrest involved adults. Of 
the strong-arm robberies cleared, 26 percent were 
by the arrest of persons under 18 years of age. In 
robberies where knives of other cutting instru- 
ments were used, persons under the age of 18 were 
involved in 14 percent of the clearances, 9 percent 
in those in which firearms were used, and 15 per- 
cent in which other dangerous weapons were used.

Nationally, arrests for robbery decreased 16 
percent in 1976 when compared to 1975. The 
greatest volume of arrests occurred in cities and 
decreased 17 percent. In the rural areas, arrests 
decreased 22 percent and in the suburban areas 
arrests decreased 16 percent. 



E.xamination of arrest data discloses that 76 
percent of the persons arrested for robbery were 
under 25 years of age and 56 percent were under 
21 years of age. Of all persons arrested for robbery, 
34 percent were under the age of 18. Robbery 
arrests for this young-age group recorded a 19 
percent decrease in 1976 over 1975. 

In 1976, 7 of every 100 persons arrested for 
robbery were females. Arrests of women for this 
offense declined 1 1 percent in 1976 when compared 
to 1975. 

From a standpoint of race, 59 percent of those 
arrested were Negro, 39 percent were white, and 
all other races made up the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

In 1976, 72 percent of all adults arrested for 
robbery were prosecuted. Thirty-one percent of the 
persons processed for this crime were juveniles 
whose cases were referred to juvenile court juris- 
dictions. Of the adults prosecuted in 1976, 56 
percent were convicted of the substantive offense, 
8 percent were convicted for lesser charges, and 
the remainder were acquitted or their cases were 
dismissed.

BURGLARY 
-DEFINITION- 



The Uniform Crime Reporting Progi'am defines burglarj- as the 
unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felonj' or theft. The use of 
force to gain entrj^ is not required to classifj' the crime as a burglary. 
The offense of burglary in this Program is broken down into three 
subclassifications: forcible entry, unlawful entr}' where no force is used, 
and attempted forcible entry.

In 1976 there were 1,439 burglaries per 100,000 
inhabitants. During the period of 1972-1976, this 
rate increased 26 percent. The burglary rate for 
1976 decreased 6 percent when compared with 



1975. The metropolitan areas reported a rate of 
1,646 burglaries per 100,000 people. The rural 
areas recorded a rate of 768 offenses per 100,000 
inhabitants. The cities outside metropolitan areas 
had a rate of 1,014 burglaries per 100,000. 

The Western States recorded the highest 
burglary rate in 1976 with 1,962 offenses per 
100,000 inhabitants followed by the Northeastern 
States with a rate of 1,447, the Southern States 
1,346, and the North Central States 1,195. 

No fore 

In 1976, 75 percent of the burglaries involved 
forcible entry, 18 percent were unlawful entry 
(without force) and the remainder were forcible 
entrj' attempts. 

Nonresidential offenses accounted for 37 percent 
of the total burglaries in 1976; residential burglai'ies 
accounted for 63 percent. Daytime burglaries of 
residences decreased 2 percent in 1976 in com- 
parison to the 1975 experience. Considering the 
period 1972-1976, there has been an overall 
increase of 36 percent in the volume of daytime 
residential burglaries. 

Economically, the offense of burglary repre- 
sents a substantial sum. Victims suffered a loss of 
$1.4 billion in 1976 through the offense of burglar^'. 
During 1976, residential losses amounted to $955 
million. In 1975, that loss amounted to $925 
million. Nonresidential losses due to burglaries 
amounted to $432 million in 1976 and $446 million 
in 1975. In 1976, the average dollar loss per bur- 
glary was $449. 

Qleatancei 

In 1976, law enforcement was successful in 
clearing 17 percent of the total burglary offenses. 

Adults were involved in 67 percent of all cases 
cleared while young persons under 18 years of 
age were involved in 33 percent. Law enforcement 
agencies in cities 250,000 and above cleared 16 
percent of these crimes in 1976. In the suburban 
areas 17 percent were solved while 19 percent 
were cleared in the rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

In this Program, the arrest of one person may 
account for the clearance of numerous offenses. 
Likewise, the arrest of several may clear only one 
offense. In the offense of burglary, it has been the 
experience of law enforcement that the arrest of 
one person frequently clears several reported 
offenses. Total arrests for burglary in 1976, de-

In analyzing the 1972-1976 period, a 47 per- 
cent increase in burglary arrests is seen. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 18 increased 48 per- 
cent, while the arrests of adult burglary offenders 
increased 46 percent. 

Nationally, persons under 25 accounted for 84 
percent of all arrests for burglary in 1976. Persons 
under 18 accounted for 51 percent of all arrests for 
this crime. Females were involved in 5 of every 



100 arrests for burglary during 1976. Arrests of 
whites accounted for 69 percent of all burglary 
arrests in 1976. Twenty-nine i)ercent of the persons 
arrested for burglary were Negroes. 

Persons Charged 

In 1976, 84 percent of the adults arrested for 
burglary were prosecuted. Of the adults prose- 
cuted, 59 ])ercent were found guilty as charged. 
Eleven percent of those charged with burglary 
were convicted of a lesser offense and 30 percent 
were freed through acquittal or dismissal of the 
charges. Juveniles referred to juvenile court

LARCENY-THEFT 



-DEFINITION- 



Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking or stealing of property or articles 
without the use of force, violence, or fraud. It includes crime such as 
shoplifting, pocket-picking, purse-snatching, thefts from motor vehicles, 
thefts of motor vehicle parts and accessories, bicycle thefts, etc. In the 
Uniform Crime Reporting Program this crime category does not include 
embezzlement, "con" games, forgerj^ and worthless checks. Motor 
vehicle theft, of course, is excluded from this category for crime re- 
porting purposes inasmuch as it is a separate Crime Index offense.

theft reported, which is an increase from 5,977,700 
such crimes in 1975. This offense makes u]) 55 
percent of the Crime Index total. From a seasonal 
standpoint, the volume of larceny-theft was high- 
est during the summer months of 1976. 

Geographical!}', the volume of larceny-theft 
was highest in the Southern and North Central 
States which reported 30 and 27 percent respec- 
tively, followed by the Western States with 28 
percent, and the Northeastern States with the 
remainder.

Trend 

Larceny-theft increased 5 percent in 1976 when 
compared to the previous year. The large cities 
with over 250,000 inhabitants reported an increase 
of 6 percent in volume. The rural and suburban 
areas increased 5 and 4 percent, respectively. 

Geographically, the Northeastern States re- 
ported an increase of 11 percent, the Southern 
States increased 6 percent, while the Western

Rate 

During 1976, there were 2,921 larceny-thefts 
per 100,000 inhabitants, an increase of 4 percent 
over the 1975 rate. The rate has increased 47 



percent since 1972. In 1976, the larceny-theft 
rate in the metropolitan areas was 3,323 per 
100,000 inhabitants, 2,889 per 100,000 inhabitants 
in cities outside any metropolitan areas and 
1,002 in the rural areas. Viewed geographically, 
the Western States reported the highest larceny- 
theft rate with 3,740 offenses per 100,000 inhabi- 
tants, which was a 1 percent increase over 1975. 
The North Central States had a rate of 2,944, up 
1 percent; the Southern States 2,717, up 5 per- 
cent; and the Northeastern States with 2,542 
reported an increa.se of 11 percent in the rate. 

Nature 

The average value of property stolen in each 
larceny-theft in 1976 was $184, up from $166 in 
1975. When the average value is applied to the 
estimated crimes in this category, the dollar loss 
to victims is $1.2 billion. It is true that a portion 
of the goods stolen was recovered and returned 
to victims, but the relatively low percentage of 
these crimes cleared by arrest and the lack of 
specific identification characteristics on such 
property indicate these recoveries did not ma- 
terially reduce the overall loss. In addition many 
oflFenses in this category, particularly where the 
value of the stolen goods is small, never come to 
police attention. 

In 1976, the average value of goods and property 
reported stolen from victims of pickpockets was 
$135, by pursesnatchers $92, by shoplifters $39, 
by thefts from motor vehicles $216, and by 
miscellaneous thefts from buildings $283. 

From year to year, the distribution of larcenj'- 
theft as to type of theft remains relatively 
constant. As in prior years, a major portion of 
these thefts, 42 percent, represented thefts of 
motor vehicle parts and accessories and other 
thefts from motor vehicles. Other major types 
of thefts which contributed to the large number 
of these crimes were thefts from buildings with 15 
percent and stolen bicycles with 10 percent. 
Miscellaneous types of larceny-thefts, not falling 
into any of the specific categories for which data 
were collected, made up 18 percent of the total. 
The remainder was distributed among pocket- 
picking, purse-snatching, shoplifting, and thefts 
from coin-operated machines. The accompanying 
table presents the distribution of larceny-theft 
by type within the geographic regions of the 
United States.

Clearances 

In 1976, 19 percent of all larceny-theft offenses 
brought to police attention were solved. Involve- 
ment of the young age group is demonstrated by 
the fact that 33 percent of these crimes which 
were cleared in the Nation's cities were solved by 
arrest of persons under 18 years of age. Juvenile 
clearance figures for suburban areas and rural 
areas were 35 percent and 22 percent, respectively^ 

Persorts Arrested 

Fifty-two percent of the total arrests for Crime 
Index offenses in 1976 were for larceny-theft. 
Arrests for this crime decreased 4 percent, 1976 
over 1975. Forty-three percent of these arrests 
were of persons under 18 years of age, and when 



individuals under 21 were considered, the ratio 
rose to 60 percent. When examined by sex of 
arrested persons, it was determined that females 
comprised 31 percent of all arrests for larceny- 
theft and that females had a higher involvement in 
this offense than for any of the other Index offenses. 
In fact, women were arrested more often for 
larceny-theft than any other offense in 1976. 

Arrests of females for larceny-theft violations 
declined 2 percent in 1976; while arrests of males 
decreased 5 percent when compared to 1975 
figures. Arrests of whites outnumbered Negroes 
by more than 2 to 1 with all other races comprising 
about 2 percent of the arrests for larceny-theft. 
The total volume of arrests for larceny-theft in 
1976 as compared with the 1972 figures indicates 
a 54 percent increase. Arrests of individuals under 
18 were 36 percent greater than 1972. The number 
of adult arrests rose 70 percent over the number of 
arrests for this offense in 1972. 

Persons Charged 

As in prior years, law enforcement agencies 
national!}' charged more offenders for larceny- 
theft than for any other Crime Index offense. 
Seventy-three percent of the adults prosecuted 
for larceny-theft were found guilty of this offense, 
5 percent were found guilty of a lesser charge, and 
the remaining had their cases dismissed or were 
acquitted. Thirty-seven jiercent of persons pro- 
cessed in 1976 for larceny-theft were referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction.

Rate 

The 1976 motor vehicle theft rate of 446 offenses 
per 100,000 inhabitants is 5 percent lower than in 
1975. Since 1972, the motor vehicle theft rate 

32 



has risen 5 percent. People in cities with over one 
million population were deprived more often of 
their motor vehicles in 1976 than in any other 
population group with 1,181 thefts per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Nationally, the motor vehicle theft rate in the 
metropolitan areas was 554 per 100,000 in- 
habitants. The cities outside metroplitan areas 
had a motor vehicle theft rate of 206, and the 
rural areas had a rate of 107. 

Regionally, the Northeastern States had the 
highest motor vehicle theft rate in 1976. This 
rate was 646, a decrease of 1 percent from 1975. 
The Western States had a rate of 532 per 100,000 
inhabitants which was a decrease of 1 percent. The 
North Central States had a rate of 402 which 
was 7 percent lower than the prior year and the 
vSouthern States reported a decrease of 12 percent 
in the motor vehicle theft rate of 291 per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Across the Nation in 1976, an estimated one of 
every 139 registered motor vehicles was stolen. 
Regionally, this rate was the highest in the 
Northeastern States where 12 motor vehicles per 
1,000 registered vehicles were stolen. In the other 
three regions the figures were 8 in the Western 
States, 6 in the North Central States, and 5 in 
the Southern States. 

Nature 

Motor vehicle theft rates again clearly indicate 
that this crime is primarily a large city problem 
since the highest rates appear in the most heavily 
populated sections of the Nation. In 1976, the 
average value of stolen motor vehicles was $1,741 
at the time of theft. 

Of all motor vehicle thefts reported during 
1976, 83 percent were automobiles. Eight percent 
were trucks or buses and 9 percent were other 
types of motor vehicles.

'Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
olving 14 percent of tlie motor vehicle thefts by 
n(-.t of the offender. 

Ill the Nation's largest cities, 11 percent of 
iiotor vehicle thefts were cleared during 1976. 
riiioughout the Nation, motor vehicle theft clear- 
mc f i)ercentages ranged from 25 percent in the 
M)uth Atlantic States to S percent in the New 
Cnpland States. 

In all geographic divisions and population 
■.roups, the participation of the young-age group 
)(i|nihition is indicated by the high proportion of 
hc'^e clearances which were through the arrest of 
jersons under 18 years of age. In the largest 
;ities, 26 percent of the motor vehicle thefts 
;leared were by arrests in this age group while 
uveniles accounted for 32 percent of the solutions 
n the suburbs and 28 percent in the rural areas. 



"ersons Arres 



ted 



As in prior ^ears, persons arrested for motor 
s^ehicle theft came primarily from the yoimg age 
^roup segment of the population. In 1976, 53 per- 
cent of all persons arrested for this crime were 
under 18 years of age. When persons under 21 are 



included in the computations, the proportion of 
arrests rises to 72 percent. 

The national trend in motor vehicle theft arrests 
disclosed a decrease of 7 percent in 1976 when 
compared to 1975. AikUt arrests decreased 6 per- 
cent while arrests of persons under 18 decreased 
9 percent. During the jjcriod 1972-1976 motor 
vehicle theft arrests increased 3 percent. 

Females under 18 years of age recorded a 
decrease of 1 percent in arrests for motor vehicle 
theft from 1975. White persons made up 71 per- 
cent of the arrests for motor vehicle theft, Negroes 
26 percent, and all other races accounted for the 
remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Police reports disclosed that of all persons for- 
mally processed for motor vehicle theft in 1976, 64 
])ercent were referred to juvenile court jurisdic- 
tions. No other Crime Index offense results in 
such a high percentage of juvenile court referrals. 
When the remaining adult offenders were con- 
sidered as a group, 53 percent of those prosecuted 
on charges of motor vehicle theft were found guilty 
as charged, 13 percent were convicted of lesser 
offenses, and the remainder were either acquitted 
or their cases were dismissed.

11,304,800 Crime Index offenses were reported to 
law enforcement agencies, an increase of less than 
one percent over 1975. The violent crime category 
made up 9 percent of the Crime Index total and 
decreased 4 percent in volume from 1975. Murder 
decreased 8 percent, forcible rape and aggravated 
assault each increased 1 percent, and robbery 
decreased 10 percent. The voluminous property 
crimes as a group increased less than 1 percent. 
Larceny-theft increased 5 percent while burglary 
and motor vehicle theft decreased 5 and 4 percent, 
respectively. 

Since 1972, the Crime Index offenses as a group 
have increased 37 percent. The violent crimes in- 
creased 18 percent and the property crimes rose 
39 percent in volume during this five-year period. 
The increases during this time span ranged from 
less than one percent for murder to 51 percent for 
larceny-theft. 

The estimated 1976 crime figures for the United 
States are set forth in the table titled, "National 
Crime, Rate, and Percent Change." 

Crime rates relate the incidence of reported 
crime to population. A crime rate is frequently 
viewed as a victim risk rate. Crime rates used are 
based on Crime Index offenses. 

Many factors influence the nature and extent of 
crime in a particular community. A number of 
these factors are shown on page v of this publica- 
tion. A crime rate takes into consideration only 
the numerical factor of population and does not 
incorporate any of the other elements which con- 
tribute to the amount of crime in a given area.

Crime Index Tabulations 

The following tabulations are shown to indicate 
the probable extent, fluctuation and distribution 
of crime for the United States as a whole; geo- 
graphic divisions; individual states; standard 
metropolitan statistical areas; and cities, towns, 
and counties. The measure used is a Crime Index 
consisting of seven important offenses which are 
counted as thej^ become known to the law enforce- 
ment agencies. Crime classifications used in the 
Index are : murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, 
forcible rape, robbeiy, aggravated assault, bur- 
glary-breaking or entering, larceny-thef t , and 
motor vehicle theft. 

The total number of criminal acts that occur is 
unknown, but those that are reported to law en- 
forcement provide the first means of a count. 
Not all crimes come readily to the attention of 
law enforcement; not all crimes are of sufficient 
importance to be significant in an index; and not 
all important crimes occur with enough regularity 
to be meaningful in an index. With these consid- 
erations in mind, the above crimes were selected 
as a group to furnish an abbreviated and con- 
venient measure of the crime problem. 

It is important to remember in reviewing the 
tables that the volume of crime in any area is 
subject to the factors set forth on page v. Esti- 
mates of current permanent population are used 
to construct crime rates. With our highl_y mobile 
population all communities, metropolitan areas, 
and states are affected to a greater or lesser degree 



by the element of transient population. This factor 
is not accounted for in crime rates since no reliable 
estimates by state are available nationwide. 

Crime trend and rate tables group [)laces ac- 
cording to population size. 

National averages are also shown indicating the 
type and value of the projjerty stolen, by offense 
and type, and value of the property stolen, by 
offense and type, and value recovered by police 
investigation. Robbery, burglary, and larceny- 
theft are examined by type, as well as where and 
when they occurred. 

Statistical data relating to suburban areas are 
provided for the use of law enforcement officials in 
suburban communities in making limited com- 
parisons. Places used to establish totals for sub- 
urban areas include cities with less than 50,000 
population together with county law enforcement 
agencies in standard metropolitan statistical 
areas. Of course, the crime experience of the large 
core city is excluded. 

It is important to remember in studying aver- 
ages that usually about half the units used must 
be above and about half below. National averages 
can provide the law enforcement administrator 
with valuable guidance in analyzing the local 
crime count, as well as the performance of his 
force in combating crime. The analysis, however, 
does not end with such a comparison, for it is only 
through an appraisal of local conditions that a 
clear picture of the community crime problem or 
the effectiveness of the law enforcement operation 
is possible.

1 Population is Biu-eau of the Census provisional estimate as of July 1, 1976. 

' Violent crime is offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property crime is offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle 
theft. 

' The percentage representing area actually reporting will not coincide with the ratio between reported and estimated crime totals, since these data represent 
the sum of the calculations for individual states which have varying populations, portions reporting and crime rates.

SECTION III 
CRIME INDEX OFFENSES CLEARED BY ARREST 



Law enforcement agencies clear a crime when 
they have- identified the offender, have sufficient 
evidence to charge him and actually take him into 
custody. Crime solutions are also recorded in 
exceptional instances when some element beyond 
police control precludes the placing of formal 
charges against the offender, such as the victim's 
refusal to prosecute after the offender is identified 
or local prosecution is declined because the subject 
is being prosecuted elsewhere for a crime com- 
mitted in another jurisdiction. The arrest of one 
person can clear several crimes or several persons 
may be arrested in the process of clearing one 
crime. 

The nationwide clearance information as re- 
ported by law enforcement agencies shows that 21 
percent of the Index crimes were cleared during 
1976. In 1976 law enforcement agencies cleared 
79 percent of the murder offenses, 52 percent of 
forcible rapes, 63 percent of aggravated assaults, 
and 27 percent of the robberies. Solutions in the 
property crime categories showed police cleared 
17 percent of the burglaries in 1976, 19 percent of 



the larceny- thefts, and 14 percent of the motor 
vehicle thefts. Police are able to clear a higher 
percentage of the crimes against the person, not 
only because of the more intense mvestigative 
effort afforded these violent crimes requiring police 
attention, but more importantly, because witnesses 
are usually available who can identify the 
perpetrators. 

The highest overall Crime Index clearance rate 
regionally was recorded by the Southern States 
with 23 percent, followed by the Western and 
North Central States, each with 21 percent, and 
the Northeastern States with 17 percent. 

Offenses Cleared by Arrest of Juveniles 

One means of measuring the involvement of the 
young-age group in crime is to identify the 
number of crimes in which they are the offenders. 
In 1976, 29 percent of all Crime Index offenses 
solved involved only persons under 18 years of 
age, while persons 10 to 17 years of age account 
for about 15 percent of the total United States 
population.

SECTION IV 

Persons Arrested 



Arrests are primarily a measure of police 
activity. Arrest practices, policies, ami enforce- 
ment emphasis will vary from place to place 
and within a community from time to time. The 
volume of police arrests for certain unlawful 
conduct such as drunkenness, disorderly conduct, 
and certain local ordinances is particularly 
influenced by the above. On the other hand, 
robbery, burglary, and other arrests for serious 
crimes are more likely the result of standard 
procedures. Arrests are first a measure of police 
activity as it relates to crime. Arrests do, however, 
provide a useful index to mdicate involvement 
in criminal acts by the age, sex, and race of the 
perpetrators, particularly for those crimes which 
have a high solution rate. Procedures used in 
this Program require that an arrest be counted 
on each separate occasion when a person is taken 
into custody, notified, or cited. Annual arrest 
figures do not measure the number of individuals 
taken into custody since one person may be 
arrested several times during the year for the 
same or different offenses. As noted above, this 
tends to happen frequently for certain types of 
offenses against public order such as drunken- 
ness, vagrancy, disorderly conduct, and related 
violations. 

In 1976, law enforcement agencies made an 
estimated 9.6 million arrests nationally for all 
criminal acts except traffic offenses. The arrest 
rate was 45 arrests for each 1,000 persons of 
our total estimated population for 1976. The 
arrest rate for cities over 250,000 population was 
61 per 1,000 inhabitants, for suburban areas 38, 
and in the rural areas the arrest rate was 32. 

Arrest Trends 

In 1976, police arrests for all offenses except 
traffic decreased 5 percent from 1975. During this 
time, arrests of persons under 18 years of age de- 
creased 6 percent and arrests of persons 18 years 
of age and over decreased 4 percent. When only 
Crime Index offenses are used to compute this 
trend, there is a 7 percent decrease for all ages. 

170 



During the five-year period, 1972-1976, police 
arrests for all offenses except traffic increased 22 
percent, with the arrests of persons under 18 years 
of age up 23 percent and the arrests of persons 18 
years of age and over up 21 percent. When only 
the Crime Index offenses are used in computing 
the five-year trend, the increase is 44 percent. 
Arrests of persons under 18 years of age increased 
34 percent while the adult arrests increased 51 
percent. Violent crime arrests for persons under 18 
years of age increased 28 percent while the property 
crime arrests increased 35 percent. 

Arrests for Narcotic Drug Law violations, 1976 
over 1975, decreased less than one percent na- 
tionally. From 1972 to 1976, arrests for this 
violation increased 39 percent. There is set forth a 
tabulation by geographic region showing the type 
of narcotic drug involved in the arrest of the 
offender during 1976.

percent; under 21, 48 percent; and under 25, 63 
percent. In the rural areas the distributions were 
lower for the younger age groups, with the under 
15 group being involved in 3 percent; under 18 in 
15 percent; under 21 in 32 percent; and those 
under 25 in 49 percent of total police arrests. When 
only the Index crimes are considered, 16 percent of 
all persons arrested in 1976 were under the age of 
15 and 42 percent were under 18 years of age. 

Sex 

Male arrests outnumbered female arrests by 5 to 
1 in 1976. Male arrests in 1976 decreased by 6 per- 
cent while female arrests decreased 7 percent. 
Twenty percent of the arrests for Crime Index 
offenses were of female persons. Ten percent of the 
arrests for violent crimes in 1976 involved females. 
Arrests of females for these types of crimes de- 
creased 1 percent from 1975. Again, as in prior 
years, their involvement was primarily for larceny 
which accounted for 23 percent of all female ar- 
rests. Females accounted for 31 percent of the em- 
bezzlement and 14 percent of the narcotics arrests. 
Over one-half of the runaway — police custody 
cases — were females under 18 years of age. 



Arrests of both males and females under 18 
years of age increased 25 and 16 percent respec- 
tively from 1972 to 1976. When the serious crimes 
as a group are considered, arrests of males under 
18, 1972-1976, were up 34 percent and female 
arrests increased 36 percent.

SECTION V 



Persons Charsed 



Disposition data reveals the results of cases in 
which law enforcement agencies have made an 
arrest and subsequently formally charged the 
offender in a court of jurisdiction. This informa- 
tion is important to the law enforcement adminis- 
trator in evaluating the quality of investigations 
and court presentation functions. 

In 1976, 83 ])ercent of the adults arrested for 
Crime Index offenses were prosecuted in the 
courts. Of the adults prosecuted for Crime Index 
offenses, 66 percent were found guilty as charged 
and 7 percent of a lesser offense. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested 
persons are turned over to the courts for prosecu- 
tion. There are various reasons for this : failure of 
the victim to cooperate or appear for the prosecu- 
tion, persons arrested are released with a warning, 
evidence is obtained which discloses the arrested 
person did not commit the offense, or there is not 
sufficient evidence available to support either a 
formal charge or a subsequent prosecution. 

For example, four of ten juveniles arrested are 
handled by the individual law enforcement agen- 
cies without preferring a formal charge or referring 
them directly to juvenile authorities. Tables con- 
tainmg this data commence on the following page. 
Keep in mind that police methods of handling 
juvenile offenders differ widel.y from place to place. 
Also, the tables concerning juveniles (local age 
limit) refer to those who were arrested and turned 
over to juvenile authorities in connection with 
specific criminal acts. 

Forty percent of the persons processed for Crime 
Index offenses were young persons referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction. Similar to prior years, 
juvenile referrals for motor vehicle theft were 
significant. Sixty-four percent of those processed 
for motor vehicle theft were juveniles. Juvenile 



referrals for burglary were 54 percent, larceny- 
theft 37 percent, robbery 31 percent, forcible rape 
20 percent, aggravated assault 18 percent, and 
murder 7 percent. 

During 1976, as in past years, motor vehicle 
theft, arson, burglary, and vandalism recorded 
high percentages of juvenile referrals. When all 
crime categories are reviewed, it is noted that 
convictions on original charges remained high in 
the offenses against public order and decency — 
driving under the influence, drunkenness, dis- 
orderly conduct, and vagrancy. As in prior years, 
offenses against trust, such as fraud and embezzle- 
ment, also recorded a high percentage of convictions 
on original charges. 

Of the adults who were prosecuted for Crime 
Index offenses, 27 percent were acquitted or their 
cases were dismissed. In 1976, 37 percent of the 
murder defendants were either acquitted or their 
cases dismissed at some prosecutive stage. Forty- 
nine percent of those charged with forcible rape 
were acquitted or had their cases dismissed, and 
35 percent of the persons charged with aggravated 
assault were released either through acquittal or 
dismissal. 

Seventj'-three percent of those persons prose- 
cuted for the offense of larceny-theft were found 
guilty of that offense in 1976. This was followed by 
burglary with 59 percent found guilty of the 
original charge, 56 percent for robbery, 48 percent 
for murder, 53 percent for motor vehicle theft, 
52 percent for aggravated assault, and 42 percent 
for forcible rape. 

The offense which had the highest percentage 
guilty of a lesser offense was murder where 14 
percent of the defendants were convicted on some 
charge other than murder.

222 



On October 31, 1976, 10,459 agencies represent- 
ing over 198 million of tlie U.S. poi)ulation re- 
ported a total of 41 <S, 000 full-time law enforcement 
officers for a rate of 2.1 officers per 1,000 inhabit- 
ants. When full-time civilians were included, the 
total count of law enforcement emploj^ees was 
516,000 for a national rate of 2.6 ])er 1,000 
inhabitants. 

Caution should be exercised in using rates for 
comparative purj^oses since there is a wide varia- 
tion in the responsibilities of various law enforce- 
ment agencies throughout the country. Just as 
the conditions wliicli affect the amount and type 
of crime that occurs vary from place to [)lace, so 
do the requirements for types of police service 
based upon the conditions which exist in a given 
community. For example, the increased need for 
jjolice service in a communit.v which has a highly 
mobile or seasonal population, differs from a 
community which has a relatively stable or fixed 
poi:)idation. In addition, a small community situ- 
ated between two large cities may require a 
greater number of law enforcement jjersonnel than 
a similarly sized community having no urban 
centers nearb^r. The crime conditions of the former 
are for the most part dictated by its geogra]3hic 
location. 

It is pointed out that the figures set forth in 
detailed police em])loyee tables represent national 
averages. They sliould be used as a guide or in- 
dicator and not considered as recommended or 
desirable police strengths. Adequate manpower 
for a specific place can only be determined after 
a careful study and analysis of the various factors 
which contribute to the requirement for police 
service in that community. 

The functions of sheriffs also var}- \videly in 
different sections of the country. In certain areas 
the sheriffs' res]3onsibilities are limited almost 
exclusively to civil functions and/or the adminis- 
tration of the county jail facilities. The sheriffs' 
departments used in computing rates, however, 
are all engaged in law enforcement activity and 
are responsible for all phases of policing in their 
jurisdiction. 



While the ratio of law enforcement personnel 
to population nationally remains unchanged from 
the previous year, it is significant to note that 
many cities in the United States continue to 
operate with substantially fewer law enforcement 
employees per capita than the national average. 
For example, cities in the ten to fifty-thousand 
population range average 1.9 law enforcement 
employees per 1,000 inhabitants, unchanged 
from the year before. This low average rate for 
smaller cities is oft'set by the fact that large 
cities, those with over 250,000 inhabitants, were 
substantially above the national average with a 
rate of 3.4 law enforcement employees per 1,000 
inhabitants. 

Suburban areas averaged 2.2 full-time law 
enforcement employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 
Sheriffs' departments had an average rate of 1.9 
full-time employees. 

The West North Central and West South 
Central Divisions of the country recorded the 
fewest (2.1) law enforcement emploj'ees per 
1,000 population while the Middle Atlantic and 
South Atlantic states continued as the Nation's 
leaders in the rate of law enforcement employees 
to population. The Middle Atlantic states dropped 
to 2.7 from their rate of 2.9 the year before while 
the South Atlantic states also dropped during the 
year a tenth of a point to 3.0 employees. 

Sworn Personnel 

Law enforcement employee rates based on sworn 
personnel only (excluding civilian employees) show 
that the average for all cities was 2.0 per 1,000 
inhabitants in 1976. The city rates, nationally, 
range from 0.1 to 7.7 per 1,000 inhabitants. In city 
agencies, males represented 98 percent of all sworn 
personnel, while males in suburban agencies con- 
stituted 96 percent and in county sheriff and 
police departments 92 percent. The average rate 
of sworn employees in sheriffs' departments was 
1.5 per 1,000 inhabitants and the rate range for 
the 2,656 reporting county agencies was 0.1 to 
10.8 per 1,000 inhabitants.

Table 74 shows the type of assignment of the 
officer assaulted. Thirty-seven percent were in 
two-officer vehicles, 43 percent were in one-officer 



vehicles, 6 percent were on detective or special 
assignment, and 13 percent were on other assign- 
ments. Of all assaults on police, the vehicle patrol 
officer was the victim in 80 percent of the cases.

Clearances of Assaults on Law Enforcement Officers 

Nationwide in 1976, 92 percent of law enforce- 
ment assaults were cleared by arrest. Cities over 
250,000 and those from 50,000 to 100,000 had the 
highest clearance percentage with nearly 94 per- 
cent being cleared. Assaults ia disturbance matters 
were cleared at the rate of 96 percent in the cities 
over 250,000. 



By activity, the highest clearance rate for all 
agencies was the 93 percent recorded in assaults 
on officers responding to disturbance calls and at- 
tempting arrests other than for robbery or bur- 
glary. Ambush attacks accounted for the lowest 
clearance rate with 57 percent. Table 75 shows 
the percentage of assaults cleared by type of activity 
and population group.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 

In 1976, HI local, county, state, and Federal 
law enforcement officers were killed due to feloni- 
ous criminal action in the United States, Puerto 
Rico, and abroad. During the ten-year period 
1967-1976, 1,077 officers were killed. The number 
of law enforcement officers killed in Puerto Rico 
for the period 1971-1976 and the number of 
Federal officers killed in the period 1972-1976 
have been included in the tabulations with the 
local, county, and state officers for the ten-year 
period.

Geographic Locations 

In 1976, 57 officers were slain in the Southern 
States, 24 in the North Central vStates, 15 in the 
Northeastern States, and 10 in the Western 
States. The preceding chart shows the number of 
law enforcement officers killed by region for each 
of the two five-year periods, 1967-1971 and 1972- 
1976. An accompanying table shows the officers 
feloniously killed in 1976 by geographic division 
and population grouping. 

One hundred and six of the 111 officers slain 
during 1976 were from 90 different local, county. 



and state law enforcement agencies in 34 states 
and the District of Columbia. Four officers were 
killed in Puerto Rico and one Fecieral officer was 
also killed. 

Among the states, Texas ranked highest with 
twelve officers killed. The State of Florida fol- 
lowed with seven officers slain. 

Circumstances Surrounding Deaths 

There were more law enforcement officers killed 
attempting arrests than in any other circumstance 
in 1976. This trend was established in prior years 
and continues as one of the most dangerous situa- 
tions the police officer faces today. Twenty-five 
officers were killed while attempting arrests for 
crimes other than robbery or burglary. In connec- 
tion with robbery offenses, 15 officers were slain 
by persons encountered during the commission of 
a robbery or during the pursuit of robbery sus- 
pects. Nine officers were killed at the scene of 
burglaries or while pursuing burglary suspects. 

In 1976, 13 officers were killed in ambush situa- 
tions. Five of these officers were victims of un- 
provoked attacks which did not involve any 
apparent element of entrapment. The other eight 
officers were slain in premeditated attacks. 

Twenty officers were slain in 1976 responding to 
disturbance calls. Included in disturbance calls 
are family quarrels, man with gun, bar fights, etc. 
Eleven officers were killed while investigating 
suspicious persons or circumstances, ten officers 
were slain while making traffic stops, four were 
killed while handling mentally deranged persons, 
and four officers were killed while transporting or 
otherwise engaged in custody of prisoners.

Types of Aisignment 

Patrol duties within law enforcement organiza- 
tions are the most hazardous type of assignment 
for officers. The patrol officer is frequently in 
contact with suspicious or dangerous individuals 
during the course of these duties and each of these 
situations constitutes a threat to the officer's per- 
sonal safety. The patrol officer is readily identifi- 
able because of his uniform and/or patrol vehicle. 
He frequently must determine quickly and accu- 
rately if a person is involved in a criminal act. If 
the suspect constitutes a danger to the officer's 
personal safety, he must afford himself reasonable 
protection. 

The patrol officer is placed in a variety of dan- 
gerous situations and must react to circumstances 
as they occur without the benefit of detailed infor- 
mation or planning. He often risks attack through 
frequent encounters with criminal offenders at or 
near crime scenes. 

These perils are substantiated by the fact that 
officers assigned to patrol duty are the most 
frequent targets of the police killer. Law enforce- 
ment officers assigned in other capacities are con- 
fronted with equally tense and dangerous types of 



situations while performing their duties but not 
with the same frequency. 

Sixty-seven patrol officers were slain in 1976. 
Sixty-six of these officers were assigned to patrol 
vehicles and one was on foot patrol. Twenty- 
seven officers were detectives or officers on special 
assignments. In the highest tradition of the law 
enforcement profession, 17 officers, while in an 
off-duty status, were taking appropriate police 
action relative to criminal matters when they were 
slain. Six of the off-duty officers were killed by 
persons they encountered during the commission 
of a robbery or while in pursuit of robbery suspects. 
During the period 1967-1976, 66 percent (714) of 
the 1,077 officers slain were assigned to patrol 
duties. 

In 1976, .33 of the on-duty officers were alone 
and unassisted when killed. During the period 
1967-1976, 34 percent (368) of the oflScers were 
alone and unassisted when they gave their lives 
for the communities they were sworn to protect. 

Weapons Used 

Ninety-four, or 85 percent, of the law enforce- 
ment officers killed in 1976 were slain with

lirearms. Handguns were used in 66 of these 
deaths, rifles in 12, and shotguns were used to kOl 
16 of the officers. Fifteen officers were slain with 
their own firearms. The remaining 17 officers not 
slain with firearms were killed through the use of 
the following: five officers were slain with knives, 
five with automobiles, four with bombs, two with 
clubs, and one died in a fire. 

Fifty-four of the officers killed in 1976 utilized 
their service firearms while in contact with their 
assailants. Thirty-one of these officers discharged 
their service firearms while attempting to protect 
themselves. Forty-eight percent (53) of the officers 
killed by firearms were within five feet of their 
assailants at the time thej' were shot.

Table Methodolosy 



This appendix is to assist the more-than-casual 
reader in understanding the various tables pre- 
sented regarding crime-related information. Each 
table within this publication is constructed to 
provide as much information as is available. By 
utilizing the following key in conjunction with the 
pages that follow, an individual interested in a 
specific table, will gain a better understanding of 
table construction. 

Key: A) Column 1 indicates the table number. 
This appendix will refer to Tables 1 
through 57, "Crime in the United 
States— 1976." 

B) Column 2 indicates the type of crime 
statistics presented. Four distinct types 
of crime-related data are submitted to 
UCR by law enforcement agencies: 

1. offense (o) 

2. clearance (c) 

3. arrest (a) 

4. disposition (d) 

C) Column 3 indicates the reporting period 
for the data. Depending on data 
collected, submission of data is either 
by monthly (M) or annual (A) reports. 

D) Column 4 indicates level of submission 
necessary for an agency's statistics to be 
included in table aggregations. Data 
tables result from the submissions of 
three levels of agency participation. 

1) Agencies having reported data 
for all twelve months of the 
year. 



2) Agencies reporting for less 
than twelve months of the 
year. 

3) Non-reporting agencies. 
This column indicates that the statistics 
from each agency level are, or are not, 
included in the table(s). For example, 
Table 1 includes data from all three 
agenc_v reporting levels, but Table 14 
presents only the data from agencies 
reporting for the entire year. 

E) Column 5 indicates individual table 
construction. Data adjustments, if any, 
are discussed along with various defini- 
tions of data aggregation. 

F) Column 6 indicates general comments 
regarding potential use and misuse of 
the statistics presented. 

G) Column 7 indicates the percent of total 
United States population represented 
in each table or family of tables. The 
number of contributing agencies also 
varj^ among tables. Therefore, the 
percentage of potentially useable agen- 
cies is presented. For example, Table 1 
represents national level statistics for 
all agencies serving 215 million popula- 
tion, while Table 56 statistics are 
compiled from a more limited group of 
agencies representing 34 million 
population.

Estimated Arrests statistic is the sum of 


















estimated arrest volumes for each of the 29 


















offenses. Each individual arrest total is the 


















sum of the estimated vohunes within each 


















of the eight population groups (see App. III). 


















Each group estimate is the reported volume 


















(as shown in Table 29) divided by the per- 


















cent total group population reporting (as 


















estimated for July 1. 1976). For example, in 


















the Rural Area, agencies having reported 


















six or more months represent 41,740 Bur- 


















glary arrests and 74.9% of the total rural 


















population. The rural Burglary arrest total, 


















Eb, is estimated to be:

OFFenses in Uniform Crime Reporting 



Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting are di- 
vided into two groupings designated as Part I 
and Part II offenses. Crime Index offenses are in-

Appendix III 
Uniform Crime Reporting Population Definitions 



In this publication, data are generally presented 
in population groupings established by the Bureau 
of the Census. Eight major population groups are 
shown below: 



Political label 



Population coverage 



I City Over 250,000. 

11 City 100,000 to 250,000. 

in City 50,000 to 100,000. 

IV City 25,000 to 50,000. 

V _. City 10,000 to 25,000. 

VI .._ City Le^s than 10,000. 

VIII Rural county 

IX Suburban county 



The major source of Uniform Crime Reporting 
(UCR) data is the individual police agency; 
therefore, some population and geographical ag- 
gregations may differ from standard Census defini- 
tions to render them consistent to police reporting 
areas and jurisdictions. UCR employs standard 
city and Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas 
(SMSA) classifications from the Bureau of the 
Census, but rural and suburban areas are slightly 
changed to match the reporting area of the local 
police. 

Rural Areas, Other Cities, and SMSA Area 
represents a structure of presentation often used 
in this publication. These three areas are mutually 
exclusive and exhaustive. 



The Rural Area is that portion of a countj^ 
outside the SMSA and excluding areas covered 
by city police agencies. 

Other Cities are urban places outside the SMSA, 
most are incorporated. 

The SMSA Area represents all agencies within 
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area. 

Suburban Area refers to cities with less than 
50,000 inhabitants plus counties within an SMSA 
(excluding the central city). 

The number of full-service law enforcement 
agencies serving the population groups will 
slightly vary from year to year. This phenomena 
is caused through geo-political consolidation, 
municipal incorporation, etc. The following list 
shows the number of agencies within each popula- 
tion group.
