CRIME FACTORS 



The presence of crime in our Nation's communities is a serious concern 
not only of the law enforcement profession, but to society at large. 
Historically, the causes and origins of crime have been the subjects of 
investigation by many disciplines. However, no definitive conclusions have 
yet been reached. Instead, a number of factors affecting the volume and type 
of crime that occurs from place to place have been delineated. Some of these 
are as follows: 

Density and size of community population and its surrounding area. 

Variations in composition of the population, particularly age 
structure. 

Stability of population with respect to transient factors. 

Economic conditions, including job availability. 

Cultural conditions, such as educational, recreational, and religious 
characteristics. 

Climate. 

Effective strength of law enforcement agencies. 

Administrative and investigative emphases of law enforcement. 

Policies of other components of the criminal justice system (i.e., 
prosecutorial, judicial, correctional, and probational). 

Attitudes of citizenry toward crime. 

Crime reporting practices of citizenry. 
The Uniform Crime Reports give a nationwide view of crime based on 
police statistics contributed by state and local law enforcement agencies. 
Population size is the only correlate of crime utilized in this publication. 
While the other factors listed above are of equal concern, no attempt is made 
to relate them to the data presented. The reader is, therefore, cautioned 
against comparing statistical data of individual communities solely on the 
basis of their population size.

FOREWORD 

Fifty years ago, the International Association of Chiefs of PoHce (lACP) 
initiated the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, which was designed 
to measure criminal activity throughout the United States. The task was 
formidable. It was not possible to compile national statistics merely by 
cumulating state statistics. Each state had a different criminal code, and 
crimes with similar elements were often given different labels. 

The lACP overcame that obstacle by putting aside the states' 
nomenclature and by establishing instead uniform definitions for various 
crimes. For example, an "unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony or 
theft" was treated as a burglary even if it occurred in a state where the use of 
force and entry at night were also elements of burglary. This use of uniform 
definitions enabled the UCR Program to measure criminal activity 
nationwide. 

The lACP developed the UCR Program, but the complexity of 
nationwide data gathering and the importance of the UCR's findings to the 
Federal Government and the Nation as a whole militated in favor of greater 
Federal involvement. Accordingly, in 1930, Congress directed the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation to administer the UCR Program. 

Although many technical improvements have been made during the last 
50 years, the basic concept of the UCR Program — collection of data on 
criminal activity throughout the country — remains the same. The use of UCR 
data, however, has greatly expanded. UCR was designed to be a management 
tool for law enforcement executives. However, now — because of the growing 
recognition that the measure of criminal activity is relevant to a wide variety 
of fields — legislators, academicians, and other students of the crime problem 
have come to rely on the Uniform Crime Reporis. 

The FBI is proud to have the opportunity to serve the American public 
as administrator of the UCR Program. We do not relish exposing the darker 
side of society's behavior, but a better understanding of our crime problem — 
which the UCR Program facilitates — may enable us to be more effective in 
our battle against crime.

SECTION I 
SUMMARY OF THE UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING 

PROGRAM 



Through the voluntary contribution of crime statistics 
by over 15,000 law enforcement agencies across the 
United States, the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) 
Program provides periodic assessments of crime in the 
Nation as measured by offenses coming to the attention of 
the law enforcement community. To generate a reliable 
set of criminal statistics for use in law enforcement 
administration, operation, and management is the Pro- 
gram's primary goal. However, data emanating from the 
Program are widely utilized by other criminal justice 
professionals, legislators, and scholars who have an 
interest in the crime problem. Additionally, the statistics 
have historically furnished the general public an indica- 
tion of fluctuations in the level of crime in our society. 

Historical Background 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records of the 
International Association of Chiefs of Police (lACP) 
initiated this voluntary national data collection effort in 
1930. That same year, the Congress of the United States 
appointed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as 
the national clearinghouse for statistical information on 
crime. Since that time, data based on uniform classifica- 
tions and procedures of reporting have been obtained 
from the Nation's law enforcement agencies. 

In an effort to provide as complete a picture of crime in 
the United States as possible, the Committee on Uniform 
Crime Records of the lACP chose to obtain data on 
offenses that come to the attention of law enforcement 
agencies, since these data were more readily available 
than any other reportable crime information. Seven 
offenses, because of their seriousness, frequency of occur- 
rence, and likelihood of being reported to police, were 
initially selected to serve as an Index for evaluating 
fluctuations in the volume of crime. These crimes, known 
as the Crime Index offenses, were murder and nonnegli- 
gent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated 
assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. 
By congressional mandate, arson was added as the eighth 
Index offense in late 1978. 

To provide nationwide uniformity in the reporting of 
data, standardized definitions were adopted for all of- 
fenses. Such standardization was necessary to overcome 
the variations in definitions of criminal offenses in differ- 



ent sections of the country. Without regard for local 
statutes, reporting agencies are required to submit their 
data in accordance with the UCR definitions of offenses as 
set forth in Appendix II of this publication. Because of 
variances in punishment for the same offenses in different 
state codes, there is no possibility in a program such as this 
to distinguish between felony and misdemeanor crimes. 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records, lACP, 
continues to serve in an advisory capacity to the FBI 
concerning the operation of the UCR Program. In this 
connection, the lACP, through surveys of law enforce- 
ment records and crime reporting systems, plays an active 
and effective part. The National Sheriffs' Association 
(NSA) in June, 1966, established a Committee on Uniform 
Crime Reporting to serve in an advisory role to the NSA 
membership and the national UCR Program. This Com- 
mittee actively encourages sheriffs throughout the coun- 
try to fully participate in the Program. 

Also active in promoting interest in the UCR Program 
are committees on Uniform Crime Reporting within state 
law enforcement associations. These committees foster 
widespread and more intelligent use of uniform crime 
statistics and lend assistance to contributors when the 
need exists. 

Methods of Data Collection 

UCR Program contributors compile and submit their 
crime data in one of two means: either directly to the FBI 
or through their state UCR Programs. Those which 
submit directly to the FBI are provided, on an individual 
basis, continuing guidance and support from the national 
Program. 

Presently, there are 47 operational state-level UCR 
Programs which have been very effective in the attain- 
ment of increased coverage of law enforcement agencies 
due to state mandatory reporting requirements. These 
agencies are also able to provide more direct and frequent 
service to participating law enforcement agencies and to 
make information more readily available for use at the 
state level. These state-level agencies have resulted in 
vastly more efficient operations at the national level. 

With the development of a state UCR Program, the 
FBI ceases collection of data directly from individual law 
enforcement agencies within the state. Instead, completed 



information from these agencies is forwarded to the 
national Program through the state data collection agen- 
cy. 

The conditions under which these systems are devel- 
oped ensure consistency and comparability in the data 
submitted to the national Program, as well as provide for 
regular and timely reporting of national crime data. These 
conditions are: (1) The state Program must conform to the 
national Uniform Crime Reports' standards, definitions, 
and information required. These requirements, 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' publication dead- 
lines. 

To fulfill its responsibilities in connection with the UCR 
Program efforts, the FBI continues its internal procedures 
of editing and reviewing individual agency reports for 
both completeness and quality; has direct contact with 
individual contributors within the state when necessary in 
connection with crime reporting matters, coordinating 
such contact with the state agency; and upon request, 
conducts training programs within the state on law 
enforcement records and crime reporting procedures. 
These training sessions are, of course, coordinated with 
the state agency. Should circumstances develop whereby 
the state agency does not comply with the aforementioned 
requirements, the national Program may reinstitute a 
direct collection of Uniform Crime Reports from law 
enforcement agencies within the state. 

Reporting Procedures 

Each month, law enforcement agencies report the 
number of Crime Index offenses (murder and nonnegli- 
gent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated 
assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and 
arson) that become known to them. A count of these 
crimes, which are also known as Part I offenses, is taken 
from records of all reports of crime received by law 
enforcement agencies from victims, officers who discov- 
ered the infractions, or other sources. 

Whenever complaints of crime are determined through 
investigation to be unfounded or false, they are eliminated 
from an agency's count. The number of "actual offenses 



known" in Part I is reported to the FBI whether anyone is 
arrested for the crime, the stolen property is recovered, or 
prosecution is undertaken. Additionally, each month law 
enforcement agencies report the total number of actual 
offenses cleared. Crimes are "cleared" in one of two ways: 
(1) at least one person is arrested, charged, and turned 
over to the court for prosecution; or (2) by exceptional 
means when some element beyond police control pre- 
cludes the physical arrest of an offender. Other monthly 
submissions on the Part I crimes include the number of 
clearances which involved only offenders under the age 
of 18; the value of property stolen and recovered in 
connection with Part I offenses; and detailed information 
pertaining to criminal homicide. 

The age, sex, and race of persons arrested are reported 
monthly for both Part I and Part II offenses by crime 
category. Part II offenses, while excluding traffic viola- 
tions, include all other crimes except those classified as 
Part I. 

Various data on law enforcement officers assaulted or 
killed are collected on a monthly basis. Other law 
enforcement employee data, specifically the number of 
full-time sworn officers and other personnel, are reported 
as of October 31 of each calendar year. 

Editing Procedures 

Since data reliability is a matter of high priority to the 
UCR Program, each incoming report is reviewed not only 
for arithmetical accuracy but for deviations which may 
indicate reporting errors. The experiences of similar 
agencies or the crime levels established by the reporting 
agency's previous submissions are periodically compared 
with each agency's reports in an attempt to ascertain any 
unusual fluctuations in the crime counts. 

Variations in reported crime levels and ratios may 
indicate possible incompleteness in reporting or changes 
in reporting procedures. Necessary arithmetical adjust- 
ments or noted deviations are brought to the attention of 
the submitting agency through correspondence. Not only 
are individual reports studied, but periodic trends for 
individual reporting units are prepared and evaluated. As 
a standard procedure, crime levels 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 contributing agency, either directly 
or through its state Program. The communications con- 
taining these inquiries specifically direct attention to 
possible changes in records or reporting procedures. 
When it is found that crime reporting procedures are in 
part responsible for the difference in the level of crime, 
the figures for specific crime categories, or if necessary, 
totals are excluded from the trend tabulations. 

In addition to its internal data verification practices, the 
UCR Program endeavors to maintain statistical validity 
by providing training seminars and instructional materials 
in UCR procedures. Throughout the country, the FBI 



conducts UCR seminars and workshops for law enforce- 
ment personnel, during which national and state UCR 
Program personnel enlist the cooperation of new contrib- 
utors and explain the purpose of the Program and the 
methods of assembling information for reporting. When 
an individual agency has specific problems in compiling 
its crime statistics and remedial efforts are unsuccessful, 
FBI Headquarters' personnel may visit the contributor to 
aid in resolving the difficulties. 

As a further aid, all contributing agencies are supplied 
with the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook which 
details procedures for classifying and scoring offenses. 
Also, since a good records system is essential for accurate 
crime reporting, the FBI makes available the Manual of 
Law Enforcement Records which can serve as a guide in 
the establishment of a sound law enforcement records 
system. 

To enhance communication among Program partici- 
pants, the UCR "Newsletter" and State UCR Program 
Bulletins are utilized to explain revisions in the Program, 
as well as present information and instructional material. 
Newsletters are produced periodically as needs arise. 

The final responsibility for data submissions rests with 
the individual contributing law enforcement agency. 
Although the Program makes every effort through its 
editing procedures, training practices, and correspon- 
dence to assure the validity of the data it receives, the 
statistics' accuracy depends primarily on the adherence of 
each contributor to the established standards of reporting. 
Deviations from these established standards which cannot 
be resolved by the national UCR Program may be 
brought to the attention of the Committee on Uniform 
Crime Records of the lACP or Committee on Uniform 
Crime Reporting of the NSA. 

Reporting Area 

One method of analyzing the statistics submitted to the 
UCR Program is the presentation of data by reporting 
areas. Geographically, the United States is divisible by 
regions and divisions. Further breakdowns by city size 
rely on population figures and proximity to metropolitan 
areas. 

A Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA), 
generally, is made up of a core city or cities with a 
combined population of 50,000 or more and the surround- 
ing county or counties which share certain metropolitan 
characteristics. "Other cities," most of which are incorpo- 
rated, are those outside SMSAs. For crime reporting 
purposes, rural areas are made up of the unincorporated 
portions of counties outside urban places and SMSAs. As 
a general rule, sheriffs, county police, and many state 
police report crimes committed within the limits of the 
counties but outside cities, while local police report 
crimes committed within the city limits (urban places). 

Certain tables within this publication present statistics 
relative to "suburban" areas. A suburban area consists of 



cities with less than 50,000 inhabitants together with 
counties which are within an SMSA. In this context, the 
major core city is, of course, excluded. The concept of 
suburban area is especially important in a study of this 
nature because of the particular crime conditions which 
exist in the communities surrounding the Nation's largest 
cities. 

During 1979, the law enforcement agencies active in 
the UCR Program represented 99 percent of the United 
States population living in the SMSAs, 96 percent of the 
population in other cities, and 94 percent of the rural 
population. When considering the national population, as 
estimated by the Bureau of the Census, the combined 
coverage accounted for 98 percent of the total. 

Most United States law enforcement agencies submit 
crime reports to the UCR Program. However, each 
tabular presentation in this publication shows the extent of 
population coverage represented by the data included. 

More detailed information concerning the geographical 
entities used in this publication can be found in Appendix 
III. 

Population Data 

To compute crime rates for the Nation, states, SMSAs, 
and geographic divisions and regions, population esti- 
mates by the Bureau of the Census as of July 1, 1979, were 
used. Population estimates for individual cities and coun- 
ties were prepared using Bureau of the Census figures for 
1977 and 1978, which were then updated by the UCR 
Program's staff. The estimated United States population 
increase in 1979 was 1 percent over 1978. 

Offense Estimation 

Tables 1 through 5 of this publication represent total 
crime in the United States. Because some law enforcement 
agencies submit fewer than the solicited 12 months of 
offense reports during a given year, crime counts for use 
in the above-mentioned tables are estimated for these 
agencies. Offense estimation occurs within each of three 
areas: Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas, other 
cities, and rural areas. Assuming that nonreporting areas 
have the same proportionate crime experience as those 
which did provide data, estimates are based on the 
reported crime experience of similar areas within a state. 

Crime Trends 

A further means of studying crime throughout the 
Nation is to examine trends. Percent change tabulations 
presented in this publication are homogeneous to the 
extent that only figures for reporting units which have 
provided comparable data for the periods under consider- 
ation are included. Exclusions from trend computations 
are made when figures from a reporting unit are not 
received for comparable months or when it is ascertained 
that unusual fluctuations are due to such variables as 
improved records procedures. 

The current year's reporting is the most complete in 
terms of volume. Valid 2-year trends in Uniform Crime 



Reports may be used to cumulatively establish long-term 
trends. In addition, these year-to-year trends can be 
applied as the basis for reestimating the volume of crime 
and in reconstructing crime trends for prior years. 

The most reliable reports available for the current year 
are found in the crime rate tables by state and Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Area. Care should be exercised in 
any direct data comparisons with statistics in prior issues 
of Crime in the United States. Changes in the crime level 
may have been due in part to improved reporting or 
records procedures, redefinition of reporting areas, or 
other variables. 

Recent Developments 

During the course of the 1979 crime reporting year, an 
arson data collection form was designed and implemented 
in compliance with the congressional mandate that arson 
be classified as a Part I, Crime Index offense. Although 
initial participation in the submission has been encourag- 
ing, much of the 1979 data is incomplete and thus 
unpublishable. 

Every effort is being made to increase participation, as 
well as accuracy, in the reporting of arson offenses, 
arrests, and other related information. The overall goal is 
to achieve a level of data credibility equivalent to the 
other seven Index crimes. Once that level of confidence in 



the data is attained, arson information will be completely 
integrated into all aspects of the UCR analysis and 
publication efforts. In the interim, limited arson statistics 
are being published whenever completeness and reliability 
permit. 

Beginning with the 1980 data collection, limited ethnici- 
ty information is being solicited regarding persons arrest- 
ed and the victims and offenders in murder offenses. The 
change in reporting was made in accordance with stan- 
dard classifications established by the Office of Manage- 
ment and Budget for all Federal administrative reporting 
and statistical activities. In addition to the ethnic designa- 
tions of Hispanic and not Hispanic, revised race designa- 
tions encompassing White, Black, American Indian or 
Alaskan Native, and Asian or Pacific Islander are being 
implemented. 

In an attempt to achieve optimal utilization of its data, 
the UCR Program launched an analytical crime research 
effort in 1979. As an initial step, historical UCR crime and 
arrest data were used to conduct a series of analyses aimed 
at identifying long-term crime and arrest patterns. Appen- 
dix IV of this publication is a result of that endeavor. In 
the coming years, the UCR Program plans to continue 
expanding its analytical capabilities and to perform analy- 
ses in a number of substantive areas.

The crime clock should be viewed with care. Being the most aggregate representation of UCR data, it is designed to 
convey the annual reported crime experience byshowingthe relative frequency of occurrence of the Index Offenses. 
This mode of display should not be taken to imply a regularity in the commission of the Part I Offenses; rather, it 
represents the annual ratio of crime to fixed time intervals. 



SECTION II 
CRIME INDEX OFFENSES REPORTED 



MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT MANSLAUGHTER 
DEnNITION 



Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined in the Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program, is the willful (nonnegligent) killing of one human being by 
another. 

The classification of this offense, as in all 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. Not included in the count for this 
offense classification are deaths caused by negligence, suicide, or accident; 
justifiable homicides, which are the killings of felons by law enforcement officers in 
the line of duty or by private citizens; and attempts to murder or assaults to murder, 
which are scored as aggravated assaults.

Volume 

In the United States during 1979, there were an 
estimated 21,456 murders representing approximately 2 
percent of the total violent crimes. 

A geographic breakdown of murder by region revealed 
that 42 percent of the murders occurred in the Southern 
States, which account for the largest regional population. 
Twenty-one percent were reported by the North Central 
States; 20 percent by the Western States; and 17 percent 
by the Northeastern States. 

December had a higher frequency of murder offenses in 
1979 than any other month of the year. 



MURDER BY MONTH 




FEB. MAR. APR. MAY lUNE JULY AUG. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC. 



Trend 

Nationally, the number of murders increased 10 percent 
from 1978 to 1979, and all four geographic regions 
registered upswings. The Southern States reported a rise 
of II percent; the Northeastern and Western States, 
increases of 10 percent each; and the North Central States, 
a 7 percent upturn. 

Also experiencing increases in the number of murders in 
1979, the suburban areas and large core cities of 250,000 
or more people recorded 7 and 14 percent upswings, 
respectively. In the rural areas, the volume of murders 
was down 2 percent. 

The following chart reveals an increase of 5 percent 
from 1975 to 1979 in the murder counts. 




Rate 

In 1979, there was an average of 10 murder victims for 
every 100,000 inhabitants in the Nation. 

The number of murder victims in relation to population 
was highest in the Southern States with 13 murders per 



100,000 inhabitants, a 9-percent rate increase over the 
previous year. The Western States' rate was 10 per 
100,000, a 7-percent rise over the 1978 rate. Both the 
North Central and Northeastern States experienced rates 
of 8 per 100,000 population; however, the Northeast's rate 
represented a 10-percent increase, and the North Central 
Region's rate a rise of 7 percent. 

Collectively, the SMSAs reported a murder rate of 1 1 
victims per 100,000 inhabitants; the rural areas recorded a 
rate of 7 per 100,000 inhabitants; and cities outside 
metropolitan areas (Other Cities) reported a murder rate 
of 6 per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Nature 

To allow for a more detailed analysis of murder, the 
Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects supplemental 
information on this offense. Data are collected monthly on 
the age, sex, and race of murder victims and offenders; the 
types of weapons used in murders; the circumstances 
surrounding the offenses; and the relationships between 
victims and offenders. 

As in recent years, murder victims were male in 
approximately 3 of every 4 instances in 1979. On the 
average, 54 of every 100 victims were White, 43 were 
Black, and the remainder were of other races. 

During 1979, 16,955 offenders were identified in con- 
nection with the murders of 15,040 victims. Most of the 
victims (14,024) were slain in single victim situations. Of 
these, 12,429 were killed by single offenders and the 
remainder by more than one offender. Concerning homi- 
cides involving multiple victims, 815 persons were killed 
by 357 offenders in incidents involving one assailant and 
multiple victims, and 201 victims were slain by 207 
offenders in multiple victim/multiple offender situations. 

In 1979, firearms predominated as the weapons most 
often used in the commission of murders throughout the 
Nation. The accompanying chart illustrates the break- 
down of murder offenses in the United States by type of 
weapon used. In both the North Central and Southern 
Regions, firearms were used in 65 percent of the murders; 
in the Western States, they were employed in 58 percent; 
and in the Northeastern States, they were used in 53 
percent. Nationwide, 63 percent of the murders were 
committed through the use of firearms. Handguns were 
the weapons used in 50 percent of all murders. 

A comparative study for the past 5 years showed a 
decrease in the use of firearms to commit murder. In 1975, 
firearms were used in 66 percent of all murders, while 63 
percent of all murders in 1979 were perpetrated with these 
weapons. An analysis of weapons used to commit murder 
for 1975 through 1979 is shown in tabular form.

Of weapons other than firearms employed in murder 
offenses reported in 1979, cutting or stabbing instruments 
were used in 19 percent. The most widespread use of such 
weapons occurred in the Northeastern States, where 25 
percent of the murders were committed with a knife or 
cutting instrument. In the Western States these types of 
weapons were employed in 22 percent of the murders, 
while the Southern and North Central States had the least 
incidence of use of such weapons, 19 and 16 percent, 
respectively. Nationwide, other weapons such as blunt 
objects, poisons, explosives, etc., were used in 12 percent 



of the murders. In the remaining 6 percent, personal 
weapons, such as hands, fists, and feet, were used.

That murder is largely a societal problem beyond the 
control of the law enforcement community is emphasized 
by the relationship of the murder victim to the offender. 
Fifty-two percent of the murder victims in 1979 were 
acquainted with their assailants, and 1 of every 5 victims 
was related to the offender. 

The greatest percentage of murders in 1979 (43 percent) 
resulted from arguments. Seventeen percent occurred as a 
result of felonious activity, and 5 percent were suspected 
to be the result of some felonious act.

Clearances 

The clearance rate for murder in 1979 was higher than 
for any other Crime Index offense. City and suburban law 
enforcement agencies were successful in clearing 73 
percent of the murders during the year, while those in 
rural areas cleared 83 percent. In 1979, persons under 18 
years of age accounted for 5 percent of the willful killings 
cleared by law enforcement in cities and rural areas; 7 
percent of those cleared in suburban areas involved only 
persons in that age group. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests of youthful offenders under 1 8 years of age for 
murder decreased 12 percent during the period 1975- 
1979, and adult arrests for that offense fell 9 percent in the 
same period. In 1979, 44 percent of all persons arrested for 
murder were under age 25, and 9 percent were under 18. 
The 18- to 22-year age group, accounting for 25 percent 
of the total 1979 murder arrests, showed the heaviest 
involvement in this offense. Whites made up 49 percent of 
the total arrestees for murder in 1979, Blacks comprised 
48 percent, and the remaining 3 percent were of other 
races.

FORCIBLE RAPE 
_ DEFINITION _ 



Forcible rape, as defined in the Program, is the carnal knowledge of a female 
forcibly and against her will. Assaults or attempts to commit rape by force or threat 
of force are also included; however, statutory rape (without force) and other sex

Volume 

During 1979, there was an estimated total of 75,989 
forcible rapes. Forcible rape continued, as in prior years, 
to comprise less than 1 percent of the Crime Index total 
and accounted for 6 percent of the volume of violent 
crimes. Geographically, the Southern States, the region 
with the largest population, recorded 34 percent of the 
forcible rape volume; the Western States, 27 percent; the 
North Central States, 23 percent; and the Northeastern 
States, the remainder. 

The accompanying chart indicates that more rapes 
occur in the summer months than at any other time of the 
year.

Trend 

The number of forcible rape offenses in 1979 was up 13 
percent over 1978 and 35 percent over 1975. During 1979, 
39 percent of the forcible rapes occurred in cities with 
250,000 or more inhabitants, where an 1 1 -percent increase 
in volume was recorded. In the suburban areas, forcible 
rape offenses rose 12 percent, and the rural areas regis- 
tered a 4-percent increase over 1978. All regions indicated 
upsurges in the volume of forcible rape offenses with 
increases of 16 percent in the North Central States; 14 
percent in the Southern States; 12 percent in the Nor- 
theastern States; and 11 percent in the Western States. 




Rate 

By Uniform Crime Reporting definition, the victims of 
forcible rape are always female. In 1979, an estimated 67 
out of every 100,000 females in the country were reported 
rape victims, a 12-percent rate increase over 1978. Since 
1975, the forcible rape rate has risen 31 percent. 

The SMSAs experienced a rate of 80 victims per 
100,000 females. Cities outside metropolitan areas (Other 
Cities) indicated a rate of 36 per 100,000 females, and the 
rural areas followed with 30 per 100,000 females. Geo- 
graphically, the Western States reported females as rape 
victims at the rate of 96 per 100,000. In the Southern 
States, this female forcible rape rate was 71; in the North 
Central States, 57; and in the Northeastern States, 50. 

Nature 

Of all reported offenses in this category during 1979, 76 
percent were rapes by force. Attempts or assaults to 
commit forcible rape comprised the remainder. Forcible 
rape, a violent crime against the person, has been 
recognized by law enforcement as one of the most 
underreported of all Index crimes, primarily because of 
victims' fear of their assailants and their embarrassment 
over the incidents. 

Clearances 

Both the cities and the suburban areas reported 48 
percent of known forcible rapes were cleared by arrest or 
exceptional means in 1979. The rural areas recorded a 65- 
percent clearance rate. Of the total clearances for forcible 
rape, suburban areas had 1 1 percent involving only 
persons under the age of 18, while the cities and rural 
areas each reported 9 percent involving that age group 
alone. 

Persons Arrested 

Total 1979 arrests for forcible rape increased 9 percent 
from 1978 figures and 14 percent from those for 1975. 
Arrests of persons under 1 8 years of age for this offense 
increased 5 percent from 1975, while adult arrests climbed 
16 percent for the same time period. 

Fifty-seven percent of the forcible rape arrests in 1979 
were of males under the age of 25, with 30 percent of the 
arrestees in the 1 8- to 22-year age group. Fifty percent of 
the persons arrested for forcible rape in 1979 were White, 
48 percent Black, and all other races comprised the 
remainder.

Volume 

In 1979, the estimated robbery total for the United 
States was 466,881, amounting to 4 percent of the total 
Crime Index and 40 percent of the crimes of violence. 
During the year, robberies occurred most frequently 
during the month of December. 

The Northeastern States experienced the highest pro- 
portion of robberies, 32 percent of the total. The Southern 
States followed with 27 percent; the Western States 
reported 22 percent; and the North Central States ac- 
counted for the remainder. 



ROBBERY BY MONTH 




IAN. FEB. MAR. APR. MAY JUNE JULY AUG. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC. 



Trend 

The 1979 robbery volume increased 12 percent from 
the previous year but rose less than 1 percent from the 
1975 experience. 

Both cities over 250,000 in population and the suburban 
areas reported 12-percent rises in robbery offenses in 1979 
when compared with their 1978 volumes. An increase was 
also recorded by the rural areas, 6 percent. 

Geographically, all four regions experienced an up- 
surge in robbery from 1978 to 1979. In the Southern States 
the increase was 17 percent; in the Northeastern States, 14 
percent; in the Western States, 10 percent; and in the 
North Central States, 4 percent. 

The accompanying chart depicts the trend in the 
volume of robbery, as well as the robbery rate, for the 
years 1975-1979. 




Rate 

The 1979 rate of 212 robberies per 100,000 inhabitants 
was 11 percent above the 1978 rate. Robbery is primarily 
a large-city crime with 7 out of 10 occurring in those cities 



with populations of 100,000 or more. The robbery rate for 
these cities was 561 per 100,000 people in 1979. 

There were 276 robberies per 100,000 inhabitants in the 
SMS As during 1979. The cities outside metropolitan areas 
(Other Cities) experienced a rate of 58 robbery offenses 
per 100,000 population, and in the rural areas, the robbery 
rate was 22 per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Regionally, robbery occurred most frequently in the 
Northeastern States where the rate was 304 per 100,000 
inhabitants. The rate per 100,000 inhabitants for the 
Western States was 245; for the Southern States, 174; and 
for the North Central States, 159. 

Nature 

During 1979, the average value loss per robbery was 
$532, for a total reported loss of $248 million. The impact 
of this violent crime on the victim cannot be measured in 
terms of monetary loss alone. While the object of a 
robbery is money or property, many victims of this crime 
suffer serious personal injury. 

Nationally, nearly half of the reported robberies com- 
mitted in 1979 were perpetrated on the streets or high- 
ways; the average loss for this type of robbery was $355. 
Among the various categories, bank robbery, which 
comprised less than 2 percent of all robberies, registered 
the highest average loss, $3,613 per incident. 

Bank robberies climbed 51 percent from 1975-1979; 
increases were also reported for two other types of 
robberies — convenience store holdups rose 15 percent and 
street robberies were up 5 percent. In the same 5-year 
period, gas or service station holdups fell 17 percent, 
robberies of commercial or business establishments other 
than those listed above declined 8 percent, and residential 
robberies dropped 7 percent. 

In 1979, 40 percent of all reported robberies were 
committed through the use of firearms; 38 percent by 
strong-arm tactics (hands, fists, feet, etc.); 13 percent by 
the use of knives or cutting instruments; and 9 percent 
through the use of other weapons.

Clearances 

Rural law enforcement agencies were successful in 
clearing 43 percent of the robbery offenses reported for 
1979, while the suburban areas cleared 28 percent and the 
cities 25 percent. Of the robbery clearances reported, 20 



percent in the suburban areas, 16 percent in the cities, and 
12 percent in the rural areas involved only persons under 
18 years of age. 

Persons Arrested 

Nationally, arrests for robbery rose 3 percent in 1979 
when compared to 1978. Increases in the volume of 
arrests for these offenses were experienced in the subur- 
ban areas with a 7-percent upswing; in the rural areas with 
a 4-percent rise; and in the cities with a 2-percent upturn. 

Data on arrests disclosed that 74 percent of the persons 
arrested for robbery were under 25 years of age, 55 
percent were under 21, and 31 percent were under 18 
years of age. 

An average of 7 out of every 100 persons arrested for 
robbery during 1979 were female. Arrests of women for 
this offense increased 6 percent when compared to 1978. 

From the standpoint of race, 57 percent of those 
arrested were Black, 41 percent were White, and 2 
percent were of other races.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 
DEFINITION 



Aggravated assault is an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the 
purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault is 
usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or 
great 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 successfully completed.

Volume 

An estimated 614,213 aggravated assaults, comprising 5 
percent of the total Crime Index and 52 percent of the 
crimes of violence, occurred in the Nation during 1979. 
Regionally, the Southern States, the most populous 
region, reported 36 percent of the total count of these 
crimes. The Western States followed with 24 percent, 
while the Northeastern States and North Central States 
each accounted for 20 percent. As has been the experience 
in previous years, the highest frequency of aggravated 
assaults was in the summer months of 1979.

FEB. MAR. APR. MAY JUNE lUlY AUG. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC. 



Trend 

In 1979, aggravated assaults increased 10 percent in 
volume as compared to 1978 and 27 percent over the 1975 
experience. Cities with 250,000 or more population re- 
corded a 9-percent upswing over the previous year, and 
the rural and suburban areas each reported 8-percent 
increases for the same period. 

Rises were reported in the volume of aggravated 
assaults for each geographic region during the year. The 
increases were 13 percent in the Western States, 11 
percent in the North Central States, 9 percent in the 
Southern States, and 8 percent in the Northeastern States. 




Rate 

During 1979 an average of 279 victims of aggravated 
assault were reported per 100,000 United States' inhabi- 
tants. In SMSAs, the aggravated assault rate was 312 per 
100,000 inhabitants; in cities outside metropolitan areas 
(Other Cities), it was 248 per 100,000 inhabitants; and in 
rural areas, it was 143 per 100,000 inhabitants. Nation- 
wide, the rate for aggravated assault increased 9 percent 
over 1978 and 23 percent over 1975. 



Of the four geographic regions, the Western States had 
the highest rate, 356 per 100,000, and the Southern States 
followed with 306. The Northeastern States' aggravated 
assault rate was 252, and in the North Central States, it 
was 214. 

Nature 

In 1979, 23 percent of the aggravated assaults were 
committed through the use of firearms; knives or other 
cutting instruments were used in 22 percent; 28 percent 
were committed with blunt objects or other dangerous 
weapons; and the remaining 27 percent were committed 
with personal weapons such as hands, fists, and feet. A 
comparison of aggravated assault from 1975 to 1979 
revealed that the use of firearms as weapons increased 8 
percent; assaults with knives or other cutting instruments 
rose 1 1 percent; assaults where blunt objects or other 
dangerous weapons were used increased 28 percent; and 
those aggravated assaults committed through the use of 
personal weapons climbed 18 percent. The accompanying 
table exhibits the regional experience of aggravated 
assault in 1979 by type of weapon used.

Clearances 

Collectively, city law enforcement agencies cleared an 
average of 59 per 100 cases of aggravated assault in 1979. 
This relatively high clearance rate was consistent with 
high rates for other crimes against the person. Persons 
under 1 8 years of age, exclusively, were identified in 1 1 
percent of the city clearances. 

Suburban and rural agencies reported 58 and 70 percent 
aggravated assault clearance rates, respectively. Persons 
under age 18 accounted for 13 percent of the suburban 
clearances and 6 percent of those in the rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault, during the period 1975- 
1979, were up 9 percent. Since 1975, arrests of persons 18 
years of age and over for aggravated assault have risen 1 1 
percent, and arrests of persons under age 1 8 increased less 
than 1 percent.

Arrests of males for this offense outnumbered those of accounted for the remainder, 
females by 7 to 1 .

BURGLARY 
DEFINITION 



The Uniform Crime Reporting Program defines burglary as the unlawful entry of 
a structure to commit a felony or theft. The use offeree to gain entry is not required 
to classify an offense as burglary. Burglary in this Program is categorized into three 
subclassifications: forcible entry, unlawful entry where no force is used, and 
attempted forcible entry.

Volume 

In 1979, there were an estimated 3,299,484 offenses of 
burglary in the United States. For the year, large cities 
with 250,000 or more inhabitants accounted for 30 percent 
of the total burglary figure. 

Burglary made up 27 percent of the total Crime Index 
offenses and was found to comprise 30 percent of the 
property crime. Geographically, the Southern States, the 
most populous region, experienced 32 percent of all 
reported burglaries; the Western States, 24 percent; and 
the Northeastern and North Central States, 22 percent 
each. 

Viewed monthly, the highest volume of burglaries was 
recorded in December of 1979.

Trend 

The 5-year trend, 1975-1979, indicated burglary of- 
fenses rose 1 percent. Nationally in 1979, the burglary 
volume increased 6 percent over 1978. For the year, cities 
250,000 and over in population reported an increase of 6 
percent; the suburban areas, a 5-percent increase; and the 
rural areas, a 3-percent rise. An upswing was registered in 
all regions, with the Southern States up 10 percent; the 
Northeastern and North Central States both having 6- 
percent increases; and the Western States showing a 2- 
percent upturn. 




Rate 

The 1,499 burglaries per 100,000 inhabitants reported 
during 1979 represented a 5-percent increase over the 
1978 rate, but a 2-percent decrease from the 1975 
experience. For 1979, the SMSAs reported a rate of 1,709 
burglaries per 100,000 people, cities outside metropolitan 
areas (Other Cities) had a rate of 1,134 for every 100,000 
in population, and the rural areas recorded a lower rate of 
771 per 100,000 inhabitants. 



Although the Western States recorded the highest 1979 
burglary rate with 1,949 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, 
their rate showed virtually no change from 1978. Each of 
the remaining regions showed rate increases from 1978. 
The Southern States' rate of 1,486 was up 8 percent; the 
Northeastern States followed with 1,473, up 7 percent; 
and the North Central States' rate of 1,220 represented a 
5-percent rise. 

Seventy-three percent of the burglaries in 1979 in- 
volved forcible entry, 20 percent were unlawful entries 
(without force), and the remainder were forcible entry 
attempts. 

Residential offenses accounted for 64 percent of the 
total burglaries in 1979; nonresidential burglaries made up 
the remaining 36 percent. Daytime occurrences increased 
6 percent for residential property and 12 percent for the 
nonresidential category in 1979 from 1978. Nighttime 
burglaries also rose — 8 percent for nonresidential struc- 
tures and 3 percent for the residential category. 

During the period 1975-1979, daytime burglaries rose 
in volume, while nighttime incidents declined. Residential 
burglaries were up 7 percent during the day, but de- 
creased 10 percent for the nighttime. Nonresidential 
daytime occurrences increased 21 percent, while night- 
time occurrences fell 9 percent. 

Burglary represents a substantial financial loss. In 1979, 
burglary victims suffered losses totaling $2.1 billion. The 
average dollar loss per burglary was $644. 

Clearances 

In 1979, adults were involved in 68 percent of all 
burglary offenses cleared, and only young people under 
18 years of age were offenders in the remaining 32 
percent. Thirty-six percent of the burglary clearances in 
the suburban areas and 29 percent of those in the rural 
areas involved solely persons under age 18. 

Of the burglaries reported within their jurisdictions in 
1979, law enforcement agencies in rural areas cleared 19 
percent; those in the suburban areas recorded a clearance 
rate of 15 percent; and agencies in cities with 250,(X)0 or 
more inhabitants obtained clearances in 13 percent of 
these crimes. 

Persons Arrested 

In the UCR Program, the arrests of several persons may 
account for the clearance of but one crime. Likewise, with 
the arrest of one individual, law enforcement agencies 
may clear numerous offenses, which is often true in cases 
of burglary. In analyzing the 1975-1979 period, an 11- 
percent decline in burglary arrests was seen. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 18 dropped 16 percent, and 
arrests of adult burglary offenders fell 5 percent. 

When the 1978-1979 burglary figures were compared, 
an increase of 6 percent was seen for total burglary arrests 
of persons 1 8 years of age and over, while a decrease of 6 
percent was seen for persons under the age of 18. Arrests 
for burglary were up 1 percent in both the suburban and

LARCENY-THEFT 
_ DEFINITION 



Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of 
property from the possession or constructive possession of another. It includes 
crimes such as shoplifting, pocket-picking, purse-snatching, thefts from motor 
vehicles, thefts of motor vehicle parts and accessories, bicycle thefts, etc., in which 
no use of force, violence, or fraud occurs. In the Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program, this crime category does not include embezzlement, "con" games, 
forgery, and worthless checks. Motor vehicle theft is also excluded from this 
category for crime reporting purposes inasmuch as it is a separate Crime Index 
offense.

Volume 

An estimated 6,577,518 offenses of larceny-theft oc- 
curred in 1979. This high-volume offense made up 54 
percent of the Crime Index total and 60 percent of the 
property crimes. As in 1978, the volume of larceny-theft 
was highest during the month of August. 

Geographically, the Southern States, which are the 
most populous, reported the highest number of larceny- 
thefts, 31 percent of the total. The North Central States 
followed with 26 percent, the Western States recorded 24 
percent, and the Northeastern States accounted for the 
remainder. 




MAY iUNE JULY AUG. SEPT. OCT. 



Trend 

The volume of larceny-thefts in 1979 rose 10 percent 
from 1978. The rural areas showed an increase of 13 
percent; in the suburban areas, a 10 percent upturn was 
registered; and cities with populations of 250,000 or more 
reported an upswing of 7 percent. 

The larceny-theft trend showed little variation among 
the regions. The Northeastern States reported an 11- 
percent increase; the Southern and Western States experi- 
enced upswings of 10 percent; and the North Central 
States showed a rise of 9 percent in the volume of 
larceny-thefts. 




Rate 

During 1979, there were 2,988 larceny-thefts per 
100,000 United States' inhabitants, an increase of 9 percent 
from the 1978 rate and 7 percent from 1975. 

In SMSAs, the 1979 larceny-theft rate was 3,353 per 
100,000 inhabitants; 3,218 per 100,000 inhabitants in cities 
outside metropolitan areas (Other Cities); and 1,072 in the 
rural areas. 

The Western States reported the highest 1979 larceny- 
theft rate with 3,823 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, an 8- 
percent increase over 1978. The North Central States had 



a rate of 2,926, a rise of 9 percent; the Southern States' 
rate of 2,808 was up 8 percent; and the Northeastern 
States, with a rate of 2,626, reported an increase of 1 1 
percent. 

Nature 

For each reported larceny-theft in 1979 the average 
value of property stolen was $256, up from $219 in 1978. 
When the average value was applied to the estimated 
number of larceny-thefts, the loss to victims nationally 
was $1.7 billion. While a portion of the goods stolen is 
recovered, the relatively low clearance percentage for 
larceny-thefts (19 percent) and the frequent absence of 
owner identification on recovered property indicate the 
overall loss due to this criminal activity is not substantially 
reduced. In addition, other studies have indicated many 
offenses in this category, particularly if the value of the 
stolen goods is small, never come to police attention. 

In 1979, the average value of goods and property 
reported stolen as a result of pocket-picking was $190; by 
purse-snatching, $129; and by shoplifting, $59. Miscella- 
neous thefts from buildings and thefts from motor vehicles 
averaged $391 and $299, respectively, and thefts of motor 
vehicle accessories resulted in average losses of $109 per 
offense. 

As in prior years, a large portion of these offenses, 37 
percent, was comprised of thefts of motor vehicle parts, 
accessories, and contents. Other major types of thefts 
which contributed to the large number of these crimes 
were those from buildings, 16 percent, and stolen bicycles 
and shoplifting, 11 percent each. The remainder was 
distributed among pocket-picking, purse-snatching, thefts 
from coin-operated machines, and miscellaneous types of 
larceny-thefts. The accompanying table presents the 
distribution of larceny-theft by type and geographic 
region.

MN. FEB. MAR. APR. MAY JUNE JULY AUG. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC. 



Trend 

The number of motor vehicle thefts in 1979 jumpea > I 
percent over the 1978 experience. 

During the 1978-1979 period, the increases in motor 
vehicle thefts ranged from 15 percent in cities with 
populations from 10,000 to 24,999 to 6 percent in cities 
with 100,000 to 249,999 inhabitants. Cities 250,000 and 
over in population and the suburban and rural areas all 
reported increases of 1 1 percent in the volume of these 
offenses. 

Geographically, motor vehicle thefts were up in all 
regions. The greatest increase occurred in the most 
populous region, the Southern States, which showed a 16- 
percent upturn. The North Central States recorded a 10- 
percent rise, and the Northeastern and Western States 
each reported 9-percent increases. The accompanying 
chart illustrates that the volume of motor vehicle thefts 
has risen 10 percent since 1975. 




Rate 

The motor vehicle theft rate of 498 offenses per 100,000 
inhabitants in 1979 was up 10 percent from 1978 and 6 
percent over the 1975 experience. In 1979, 1,244 thefts per 
100,000 inhabitants occurred in cities with populations 
over one million. 

Nationally, the motor vehicle theft rate in the SMSAs 
was 611 per 100,000 inhabitants. Cities outside metropoli- 



tan areas (Other Cities) had a motor vehicle theft rate of 
266, and the rural areas recorded the lowest rate, 137. The 
continuing high motor vehicle theft rates in the most 
heavily populated municipalities of the Nation clearly 
indicate this crime is primarily a large-city problem. 

Of the Nation's regions, the Northeastern States report- 
ed the highest motor vehicle theft rate, 660 per 100,000 
inhabitants, a 9-percent increase from 1978. The remaining 
regions' rates per 100,000 population were 606 in the 
Western States, up 6 percent; 433 in the North Central 
States, a rise of 9 percent; and 379 in the Southern States, 
a 14-percent jump. 

In 1979, an estimated average of 1 of every 145 
registered motor vehicles was stolen nationally. Geo- 
graphically, this rate was greatest in the Northeastern 
Region where 1 1 of every 1,000 motor vehicles registered 
were stolen. The other three regions reported lesser 
rates — 8 per 1,000 in the Western States, 6 in the North 
Central States, and 5 in the Southern States. 

Nature 

During 1979, the average value of motor vehicles stolen 
was $2,692 at the time of theft. Of all motor vehicles 
reported stolen during the year, 75 percent were automo- 
biles, 13 percent were trucks or buses, and 12 percent 
were other types.

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies in cities cleared 14 percent 
of the motor vehicle thefts reported in their locales during 
1979; those in the suburban areas cleared 18 percent; and 
rural agencies cleared 34 percent. By geographic location, 
clearance percentages for motor vehicle theft ranged from 
23 percent in the South Atlantic Division to 9 percent in 
both the New England and Middle Atlantic Divisions. 

A high proportion of the clearances in all geographic 
divisions and population groups involved only persons 
under 18 years of age. In the suburban areas, persons in 
this age group accounted for 29 percent of the motor 
vehicle thefts cleared; in the Nation's cities, they account- 
ed for 28 percent; and in the rural areas, 25 percent. 

Persons Arrested 

As in prior years, motor vehicle theft arrests primarily 
involved the younger segment of the Nation's population. 
During 1979, 69 percent of all persons arrested for motor

vehicle theft were under 21 years of age, and those under percent over 1978. During the period 1975-1979, motor 

18 accounted for 49 percent of the total. vehicle theft arrests increased 2 percent. 

When the total volume of arrests for this offense during Whites made up 70 percent of the arrestees for motor 

1979 was compared with that of the previous year, a vehicle theft. Blacks 27 percent, and all other races 

decrease of 1 percent was observed. Arrests of persons accounted for the remainder,

ARSON 
DEFINITION 



Arson is defined by the Uniform Crime Reporting Program as any willful or 
malicious burning or attempt to burn, with or without intent to defraud, a dwelling 
house, public building, motor vehicle or aircraft, personal property of another, etc. 

Only fires determined through investigation to have been willfully or maliciously 
set are classified as arsons. Fires of suspicious or unknown origins are excluded. 



34 



Background 

Arson was designated a Uniform Crime Reporting Part 
I, Crime Index offense by congressional mandate in 
October, 1978. The FBI staff responsible for the UCR 
Program immediately began developing a data collection 
strategy that would eventually allow for an accurate 
portrayal of the arson problem. The strategy was also 
designed to protect the integrity of historical UCR data. 

Since the entire concept of the Crime Index is based on 
actual offenses known to law enforcement, it was deter- 
mined that only data on fires established through investi- 
gation to have been willfully or maliciously set, including 
attempts, were to be solicited. Unknown origin or suspi- 
cious fires were to be excluded from the offense counts 
until authorities definitely determined them to be arsons, 
and therefore, crimes. 

It was also recognized at the outset in planning the data 
collection that arson offenses frequently occurred in 
conjunction with other Index crimes, e.g., burglary. 
However, according to UCR procedures in such multiple 
offense situations, only one crime selected on the basis of 
an established hierarchy was to be reported. For example, 
if a burglary and arson occurred at the same time and 
place, only the burglary would be reported if the crimes 
were subjected to the hierarchy rule of reporting Index 
offenses. This assumes, of course, that arson would be 
listed subordinate to burglary in the hierarchy. To 
overcome this obstacle, arson was excluded from this 
hierarchical procedure, and the requirement was estab- 
lished that all arsons, regardless of their occurrence in 
conjunction with another crime against property or crime 
against a person, were to be reported. 

In order to design a data collection form that would 
provide detailed and meaningful information regarding 
arson, the UCR Program's staff established liaison with 
members of the law enforcement, fire service, and 
insurance communities. Each of these three entities 
furnished the national UCR Program with invaluable 
background information, suggestions on the types of 
arson-related data to be collected, and many more 
recommendations. Utilizing the input from these sources, 
a form was developed, and in April, 1979, it was approved 
by the Office of Management and Budget, printed, and 
distributed to UCR contributors. 

Initial indications show a positive spirit of cooperation 
among agencies and individuals interested in the collec- 
tion, analysis, and publication of arson data. Each of the 
50 states responded in some degree to the data solicitation, 
and while not all participating agencies were able to 
furnish figures for the first months of 1979, many provided 
partial information. 

Volume 

While not all UCR participating agencies were able to 
respond to the arson data collection request, 8,528 



agencies (representing 61 percent of the United States 
population) submitted 6 or more monthly arson reports. 
On the submissions, a total of 77,147 arson offenses were 
reported during 1979. Of the 8,528 agencies submitting 
arson counts, 8,344 provided complete reports with 
detailed information, including type of structure and 
extent of damage. 

Nature 

Structures were by far the most frequent targets of 
arsons in 1979, comprising 57 percent of the total reported 
incidents. Mobile (motor vehicles, trailers, airplanes, 
boats, etc.) and other property (crops, timber, fences, 
signs, etc.) accounted for the remaining offenses with 24 
and 19 percent, respectively. 

Residences comprised more than half of the structures 
at which arsons were directed. Seventeen percent of all 
targeted structural property was uninhabited or aban- 
doned at the time the arson occurred. 

The total monetary value of property damaged due to 
reported arsons during 1979 exceeded one-half billion 
dollars, and the average loss per incident was $7,465. 
Industrial/manufacturing structures registered the highest 
average loss, $49,769 per offense.

Clearances 

Seventeen percent of all reported arsons were cleared 
by arrest or exceptional means with the highest clearance 
rate (32 percent) being recorded for offenses in which 
community or public structures were involved. Only 
persons under 18 years of age accounted for 46 percent of 
the reported arson clearances. 

Persons Arrested 

While the number of arson offenses reported to law 
enforcement was first collected by the national UCR 
Program in 1979, the number of arrests for this crime has 
been reported for many years. During 1979, an estimated 
19,800 arson arrests were reported by law enforcement 
agencies. The volume of arrests rose 5 percent in 1979 
over the 1978 figures and 8 percent over those in 1975. 

Forty-nine percent of all persons arrested for arson in 
1979 were under 18 years of age, and 73 percent were 
under 25. Seventy-nine percent of the arrestees were 
White, 19 percent were Black, and the remainder were of 
other races. Males comprised 89 percent of all persons 
arrested for this offense.

Crime Index Total 

An estimated 12,152,730 Crime Index offenses, 9 per- 
cent more than during 1978, were reported to law 
enforcement agencies in 1979. Collectively, violent 
crimes, which comprised 10 percent of the total Crime 
Index, were up 11 percent and property crimes rose 9 
percent. 

All offenses within the Index increased in volume 
during the year. Among the violent crimes, murder was 
up 10 percent; forcible rape, 13 percent; robbery, 12 
percent; and aggravated assault, 10 percent. In the 



property crime category, burglary increased 6 percent, 
larceny-theft rose 10 percent, and motor vehicle theft was 
up 11 percent. 

Since 1975, the total volume of Crime Index offenses 
increased 8 percent. A rise of 15 percent was seen in the 
violent crime category, and an upswing of 7 percent was 
reported for property crime during this 5-year period. 

The estimated 1979 crime figures are set forth in the 
table entitled "National Crime, Rate, and Percent

Provided in the table, "Regional Offense and Popula- 
tion Distribution, 1979," are data showing the estimated 
geographical distribution of Index crimes and population. 
When utilizing figures presented on a regional basis in this 
publication, the reader is cautioned to consider each 
region's proportion of the total United States population. 
For example, while the Southern States accounted for the 
largest volume of Crime Index offenses in 1979, they also 
represented the greatest regional population. 

Based on the Crime Index offenses, crime rates relate 
the incidence of reported crime to population. However, 
many factors, some of which are shown on page v of this 
publication, influence the nature and extent of crime in a 
particular community. A crime rate takes into consider- 
ation only the numerical factor of population and does not 
incorporate any of the other elements which contribute to 
the amount of crime in a given area. 

The table, "Crime Rate, Region, 1979," lists the crime 
rates for the four geographic regions of the United States.

The table, "Crime Rate, Area, 1979," presents the crime 
experience in SMSAs, rural areas, and cities and towns 
outside metropolitan areas (Other Cities), illustrating the 
higher crime rates in the metropolitan areas. 

Note 

The collection of statistics on arson, a newly established 
Crime Index offense, was begun in 1979. However, complete 



annual figures are not available for inclusion in tables 
presenting figures for the total United States. The number of 
arson offenses reported by individual law enforcement agen- 
cies are displayed in tables 6 through 9.

Crime Index Tabulations 

In the accompanying tables, data on crime in the United 
States as a whole; geographic divisions; individual states; 
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas; and cities, towns, 
and counties are presented. Although the total number of 
criminal acts occurring is unknown, offenses reported to 
law enforcement agencies represent an indicator of crimi- 
nal activity. 

In reviewing the tables in this report, it must be 
remembered that many factors can cause the volume and 
type of crime to vary from place to place. Population, one 
of these factors, is used in computing crime rates; 
however, all communities are affected to some degree by 
seasonal or transient populations. Since estimates of 
current permanent population are used to construct crime 
rates, short term population variability is not accounted 
for in these rates. 

In addition to the presentations outlined above, national 
averages for the value of property stolen in connection 
with each offense are presented in the tables. Further 
breakdowns by type for the robbery, burglary, and 
larceny-theft classifications are listed. Also, data on the 



38 



type and value of property stolen and recovered are tion's law enforcement agency. The analysis, however, 

provided. should not end with such a comparison. It is only through 

National averages can serve as a valuable guide for the an appraisal of local conditions that a clear picture of the 

law enforcement administrator in analyzing the local community crime problem or the effectiveness of the law 

crime count, as well as the performance of the jurisdic- enforcement operation is possible.

SECTION III 
CRIME INDEX OFFENSES CLEARED 



A crime is cleared when a law enforcement agency has 
dentified the offender, has sufficient evidence to charge 
lim, and actually takes him into custody. In exceptional 
nstances, crimes may be cleared when some element 
)eyond police control precludes taking the offender into 
;ustody. Examples of circumstances resulting in excep- 
ional clearances would be the death of an offender 
suicide, deathbed confession, etc.) or the refusal of a 
victim to prosecute after an offender is identified. It 
ihould be noted that the arrest of one person can clear 
;everal crimes or several persons may be arrested in the 
process of clearing one crime. 

In 1979, law enforcement agencies reported that 20 
jercent of the Index crimes were cleared. Among the 
/iolent crimes, 73 percent of murder offenses, 48 percent 
3f forcible rapes, 25 percent of robberies, and 59 percent 
)f aggravated assaults were cleared by law enforcement 
igencies. In connection with property crimes, police 
cleared 15 percent of the burglaries, 19 percent of the 
arceny-thefts, and 14 percent of the motor vehicle thefts. 



Clearances for crimes against persons are generally higher 
than those for crimes against property because more 
intense investigation efforts are often afforded these 
offenses and because witnesses who can identify the 
perpetrators are frequently available. 

Regionally, the highest overall Crime Index clearance 
rate was recorded by the Southern States with 22 percent. 
The Western and North Central States each reported 20- 
percent clearance rates, and the Northeastern States 
recorded 17 percent cleared. 

Clearances Involving Only Persons under 18 Years of 
Age 

Only persons under 1 8 years of age were the offenders 
in 27 percent of the Crime Index offenses cleared in 1979. 
Clearances involving only youths in the aforementioned 
age group were 12 percent for violent crimes and 31 
percent for property crimes. During the same year, 
persons 10 to 17 years of age accounted for approximately 
14 percent of the total United States population.

SECTION IV 
PERSONS ARRESTED 



Although primarily an indication of law enforcement 
activity, the number of arrests provides a limited profile of 
the perpetrators of crime, especially for those crimes 
which have high clearance rates. Differing arrest prac- 
tices, policies, and enforcement emphases among agencies 
influence the volume of arrests for various offenses, 
particularly those against public order, such as drunken- 
ness, vagrancy, disorderly conduct, and related violations. 
However, arrests for serious crimes, e.g., robbery or 
burglary, are more likely to be consistent and uniform 
throughout all jurisdictions. Procedures employed in this 
Program require that an arrest be counted on each 
separate occasion an individual is taken into custody, 
notified, or cited. Also, although several charges may be 
lodged against a person at the time of arrest, only one 
arrest is counted for each separate time he is taken into 
custody. 

Law enforcement agencies in the United States effected 
an estimated 10.2 million arrests in 1979 for all criminal 
infractions other than traffic violations. Nationally, the 
arrest rate per 1,000 inhabitants was 46; for cities with 
populations 250,000 and over, the rate was 61; for 
suburban counties, 39; and for rural counties, 34. 

Arrest Trends 

Arrests by law enforcement for all crimes other than 
traffic violations increased 1 percent in 1979 from 1978. In 
this same period, arrests of persons under 1 8 years of age 
decreased 2 percent, while arrests of persons 1 8 years of 
age and over were up 2 percent. When only arrests for 
Crime Index offenses (murder and nonnegligent man- 
slaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, 
burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson) 
were used to compute a trend for all ages, a 3-percent 
increase was evident for 1979 as compared to 1978. 

During the 5 years from 1975 to 1979, arrests for all 
offenses except traffic increased 1 percent, with arrests of 
persons under 1 8 years of age down 1 1 percent. Arrests of 
persons 18 years of age and over, however, increased 6 
percent. When restricted to the eight Crime Index 
offenses, total arrests declined 2 percent and those of 
persons under age 18 fell 11 percent. An increase of 5 
percent in adult arrests occurred during the same 5-year 
period. 

Arrests for drug abuse violations in 1979 decreased 7 
percent nationwide from 1978. In the period 1975 to 1979, 
arrests for these violations were down 11 percent. The

Age 

In the Nation, 7 percent of all persons arrested were 
under the age of 15, 23 percent were under 18, 40 percent; 
were under 21, and 57 percent under 25. In the suburban 
areas, the volume of arrests of persons in the young-age > 
groups was greater than the national figures, with the: 
under 15 age group representing 8 percent; under 18, 26 
percent; under 21, 45 percent; and under 25, 61 percent. 
The distributions of arrests in the rural areas were lower 
for the younger age groups, with the under 15 group 
being involved in only 3 percent; under 18, in 13 percent; 
under 21, in 31 percent; and those under 25, in 49 percent. 

Considering only the Crime Index offenses (including 
arson), the percent of all arrestees in the Nation during; 
1979 who were under the age of 15 was 14 percent; under, 
the age of 18, 39 percent; under 21, 57 percent; and underj 
25, 72 percent. I 

Sex

ige decreased 10 percent; female arrests for the identical 
ige group decreased 13 percent. Arrests for the eight 
i^rime Index offenses during this 5-year period declined

SECTION V 
LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL 



Law Enforcement Employees 

A total of 437,000 full-time law enforcement officers for 
a national rate of 2.1 per 1,000 inhabitants was reported as 
of October 31, 1979, by 11,698 agencies representing more 
than 207 million United States inhabitants. Including full- 
time civilians, the total law enforcement employee count 
was 553,000 and the rate 2.7 per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Because of wide variations in the responsibilities of law 
enforcement agencies across the Nation, caution should be 
used when attempting any comparison of employee rates. 
Just as many factors affect the extent and type of crime 
from place to place, the conditions present in any given 
community affect the type of police service required. For 
example, the need for law enforcement service in a 
community having a highly mobile or seasonal population 
differs from a locale whose population is relatively stable. 
Further, a small community situated between two large 
cities may, due to its geographic location, require a 
greater number of law enforcement personnel than a 
similarly sized community having no urban centers near- 
by. 

The functions of sheriffs also differ significantly in 
various sections of the country. In certain areas, the 
sheriffs' responsibilities are limited almost exclusively to 
civil functions and/or the administration of the county jail 
facilities. Likewise, state police and highway patrol 
agencies may have vastly different responsibilities from 
jurisdiction to jurisdiction. 

The law enforcement employee rates presented in the 
following tables represent national averages; they should 
be viewed as guides or indicators, not as recommended or 
desirable police strengths. Adequate manpower for a 
specific locale can only be determined after careful study 
and analysis of the various conditions which contribute to 
the requirements for law enforcement service in that 
jurisdiction. 



Many United States cities operate with substantially 
fewer law enforcement employees than the national 
average. For example, the average for cities in the 10,000 
to 49,999 population range was 2.0 law enforcement 
employees per 1,000 inhabitants. However, this low 
average rate for smaller cities is contrasted by the higher 
3.4 average rate for cities with populations of 250,000 or 
more. The Nation's suburban areas averaged 2.3 full-time 
law enforcement employees per 1,000 inhabitants, while 
for sheriffs' or county police departments the average rate 
was 2.0. 

Geographically, the South Atlantic and Middle Atlan- 
tic Divisions recorded the highest rates of law enforce- 
ment employees per 1,000 inhabitants, 3.1 and 2.8, respec- 
tively. The fewest employees per 1,000 population were 
reported by the West North Central and West South 
Central Divisions, each with an average rate of 2.2. 

Sworn Personnel 

Rates based solely on sworn law enforcement personnel 
(excluding civilians) showed the average for all cities was 
2.1 officers per 1,000 inhabitants. The lowest average rate 
was recorded in cities with populations between 25,000 
and 49,999 with 1.6, while cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants registered the highest, 2.8. For sheriffs' or 
county police departments, the average rate was 1.5 per 
1,000 population. 

In city agencies, males represented 97 percent of all 
sworn personnel; in suburban agencies they accounted for 
95 percent; and in sheriffs' and county police departments, 
91 percent. 

Civilian Employees 

During 1979, 18 percent of all city law enforcement 
personnel were civilians. In suburban areas, civilians 
represented 20 percent of the total strength, and in 
sheriffs' and county police departments, they comprised 
23 percent.

used in 82 percent of the assaults on officers in 1979. 
Firearms were used in 5 percent of the assaults, knives or 
cutting instruments in 3 percent, and other dangerous 
weapons in 9 percent. Tables 66 and 68 present data on

sustained personal injuries. Thirty-four percent of the 
assaults with knives or other cutting instruments, 38 
percent of those with personal weapons, and 41 percent of 
those with other weapons resulted in injuries to law 
enforcement officers during the year.

Activity of Law Enforcement Officers at the Time of 
Assault 

The largest portion of assaults, 32 percent, occurred 
while officers were responding to disturbance calls (fami- 
ly quarrels, man-with-gun calls, bar fights, etc.). Three 
percent of the officers assaulted were responding to 
robberies or burglaries in progress or attempting to 
apprehend suspects in these crimes, and 21 percent were 
attempting arrests for other crimes. Twelve percent of the 
assaults occurred while officers were engaged in the 
handling, transporting, or custody of prisoners; 1 1 percent 
while enforcing traffic laws; and 8 percent while investi- 
gating suspicious persons. The remainder were attacked 
while performing other various duties. 

Type of Assignment 

Table 71 shows the types of assignment of officers 
assaulted. Forty-eight percent were in one-officer vehi- 



cles, 32 percent in two-officer vehicles, 6 percent on 
detective or special assignments, and 14 percent on other 
assignments. Vehicle patrol officers were victims in 80 
percent of all assaults on officers. 

Qearances 

Ninety-three percent of the assaults on law enforcement 
officers reported in 1979 were cleared. In terms of 
population grouping, cities with populations ranging from 
10,000 to 49,999 had the highest clearance rate, 95 
percent. 

By activity, the highest clearance percentages for all 
agencies were recorded for assaults on officers responding 
to disturbance calls. Ninety-five percent of these offenses 
were cleared. The lowest clearance rate (66 percent) was 
reported for ambush attacks on officers. Table 72 shows 
the percentage of assaults cleared by type of activity and 
population group.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 

In 1979, 106 local, county, state, and Federal law 
enforcement officers were feloniously killed as compared 
to 93 in 1978. During the 10-year period, 1970-1979, 1,143 
officers were slain. It should be noted that the collection 
of statistics regarding officers killed in the line of duty was 
expanded in 1971 to include United States' territories 
(Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam). Also, the 
gathering of data on slain Federal officers was begun in 
1972. Therefore, 10-year data on officers killed include 
figures for United States' territories since 1971 and 
Federal officers since 1972.

As in previous years, more officers (49) were slain in 
1979 in the country's most populous region, the South, 
than in any other. Twenty-three officers were killed in the 
Western States, 16 in the North Central States, 13 in the 
Northeastern States, 3 in Puerto Rico, and 2 in Guam. 
The accompanying chart shows the number of law 
enforcement officers killed in the geographic regions 
during each of two successive 5-year periods, 1970-1974 
and 1975-1979. Information on officers feloniously killed 



in 1979 by geographic division and population group is 
presented in the following table. 

Of the 106 officers slain during 1979, 101 were from 87 
different local, county, state, and Federal law enforce- 
ment agencies in 30 states. As indicated above, the 
remaining 5 were from Puerto Rico and Guam. Among 
the states, California, with 10 officers slain, lost more 
officers in line-of-duty deaths than any other. The State of 
Texas followed with 8 officers killed. 

Circumstances Surrounding Deaths 

During the year, 19 officers were slain by persons 
engaged in the commission of a robbery or during the 
pursuit of robbery suspects, and 7 lost their lives at the 
scene of burglaries or while pursuing burglary suspects. 
Twenty-one officers were killed while attempting arrests 
for crimes other than robbery or burglary. 

Ambush situations accounted for 11 officers' deaths in 
1979. Seventeen officers were slain responding to distur- 
bance calls (family quarrels, man-with-gun calls, bar 
fights, etc.) and 15 were killed while enforcing traffic 
laws. Nine officers lost their lives while investigating 
suspicious persons or circumstances, 4 while handling 
mentally deranged persons, and 3 while engaged in the 
handling, transporting, or custody of prisoners. 

Types of Assignment 

Seventy-one of the officers slain in 1979 were on patrol 
duty, and of those, 68 were assigned to vehicles and 3 
were on foot patrol. The perils inherent in patrol duties 
are substantiated by the fact that, in recent years, officers 
assigned in this capacity have consistently been the most 
frequent victims of the police killer. The patrol officer is 
often placed in dangerous situations and must react to 
circumstances as they occur without the benefit of 
detailed information or planning. He is repeatedly in 
contact with suspicious or dangerous individuals, each of 
whom could constitute a threat to his personal safety.

While possibly not with the same regularity, law 
enforcement officers assigned in other capacities are 
confronted with equally tense and dangerous situations. In 
1979, 24 officers slain were detectives or on special 
assignments, and in the highest tradition of the law 
enforcement profession, 11 officers were off duty but 
taking appropriate police action in response to a criminal 
act when murdered. 

Of the 95 officers who were on duty when slain during 
1979, 46 were alone and unassisted when killed. Forty- 
two percent (420) of the on-duty officers killed during the 
period 1970-1979 were alone at the time they were 
attacked. 

Weapons Used 

One hundred (94 percent) of the law enforcement 
officers killed in 1979 were slain with firearms. Seventy- 
six of these deaths were perpetrated with handguns, 18 
with rifles, and 6 with shotguns. Seventeen officers were 



felled with their own firearms. Of the 6 officers not slain 
with firearms, 4 were killed with knives, 1 by a bomb, and 
1 by a vehicle. 

Forty-nine of the officers who met their demise in 1979 
attempted to utilize their service firearms while in contact 
with their assailants, and 27 of these officers discharged 
their service weapons while attempting to protect them- 
selves. Fifty percent of the officers killed by firearms were 
within 5 feet of their assailants at the time they were shot. 

Day and Hour of Attack 

Although, as can be seen from the accompanying data, 
no one day of the week can be singled out as being 
significantly more hazardous to a law enforcement officer 
than any other, it can be stated that more officers are slain 
during the nighttime hours. From 1970-1979, 43 percent 
(488) of the 1,143 officers who lost their lives in the line of 
duty were killed during the 6-hour period, 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Persons Identified 

Law enforcement agencies cleared 102 of the 106 
killings of police officers which occurred during 1979. In 
connection with these crimes, 146 offenders were identi- 
fied, 97 percent of which were male. Of all persons 
identified, 5 1 percent were White, 47 percent were Black, 
and the other 2 percent were of other races. The assailants 
ranged in age from 15 to 86, and the average age was 29 
years. Five percent of the offenders were under the age of 
18, and 60 percent were between 18 and 30 years of age. 

As can be seen from the accompanying chart, the 
majority of the assailants were not first-offenders. Sixty- 
three percent had prior arrests, 49 percent had previous 
convictions, and 43 percent had been arrested for violent 
crimes, such as murder, forcible rape, etc. Thirty-six 
percent of the offenders had at one time been paroled or 
given probation following criminal convictions, while 16 
percent were on parole or probation at the time of the 
police killing in which they were involved. Persons 
having prior arrests for narcotic charges made up 13 
percent of the total offenders, and 6 percent had previous 
arrests for police assaults. 

During 1979, there were 17 offenders justifiably killed 
either at the scene of the police killing or in ensuing 
confrontations. Five of these assailants were killed and an 
additional 11 were wounded by the victim officers 
themselves. Four of the offenders committed suicide.

SECTION VI 

APPENDIX I 

TABLE METHODOLOGY 



This appendix is to assist the reader in understanding 
the tables presented in this pubhcation. By utiHzing the 
following key, the reader will gain a better understanding 
of table construction. 

Key: A) Column 1 shows the table number. This appen- 
dix will refer to Tables 1 through 54, Crime in 
the United States— 1979. 
B) Column 2 indicates the level of submission 
necessary for an agency's statistics to be 
included in a table. There are three levels of 
agency participation: 

1. Agencies having reported data for 
all 12 months of the year. 

2. Agencies having reported data for 
at least one month but less than 12 
months of the year. 

3. Nonreporting agencies. 

The tabulations presented in the publication 



employ statistics from one or more of the 
above-listed participation levels. For example, 
Table 1 includes all three agency reporting 
levels, but Table 14 presents only the data from 
agencies having reported for the entire year. 

C) Column 3 explains how each table was con- 
structed. Data adjustments, if any, are dis- 
cussed along with various definitions of data 
aggregation. 

D) Column 4 contains general comments regard- 
ing the potential use and misuse of the statistics 
presented.

Statistics are aggregated from individual state statis- 
tics as shown in Table 4. Crime statistics include 
estimated offense totals for agencies submitting 
less than 12 months of offense reports. Popula- 
tion statistics represent July 1, 1979, estimations. 
The tabular breakdowns are in accordance with 
UCR crime definitions (App. II) and population 
classifications (App. III). 

The 1979 statistics are consistent with Table I, 
Crime in the U.S. Pre- 1979 crime statistics have 
been updated, and hence, may not be consistent 
with prior publications. Crime statistics include 
estimated offense totals for agencies submitting 
less than 12 months of offense reports for 1979, 
Population statistics represent July 1 estimations 
for each year except April 1, 1970. The tabular 
breakdowns are according to UCR crime defini 
tions (App. II). Crime volume statistics are 
rounded to the 10th place for violent crime and 
lOOth place for property crime. 

The 1979 statistics are aggregated from individual 
state statistics as shown in Table 4. Crime 
statistics include estimated offense totals for 
agencies submitting less than 12 months of 
offense reports for 1979. Population statistics 
represent July 1 estimations for each year. The 
tabular breakdowns are according to UCR crime 
definitions (App. II). 



Crime statistics include estimated offense totals for 
agencies submitting less than 1 2 months of 
offense reports. Population statistics represent 
July 1, 1979, population estimations. Statistics 
under the heading "Area Actually Reporting 
represent reported offense totals for agencies 
submitting 12 months of offense reports and 
estimated totals for agencies submitting less than 
12 but more than 2 months of offense reports. 
The statistics under the heading "Estimated 
Totals" represent the above plus estimated of- 
fense totals for agencies having less than 3 
months of offense reports. The tabular break- 
downs are according to UCR definitions (App. 
II). 

Statistics are published for all Standard Metropolitan 
Statistical Areas (SMSAs) having at least 75% 
reporting. Figures are listed for central cities of 
the SMSAs if the cities submitted 12 months data 
in 1979. Crime statistics include estimated offense 
totals for agencies submitting less than 12 months 
of offense statistics for 1979. Population statistics 
represent July 1, 1979, estimations. The statistics 
under the heading "Area Actually Reporting 
represent reported offense totals for agencies 
submitting all 12 months of offense reports plus 
estimated offense totals for agencies submitting 
less than 12 but more than 2 months of offense 
reports. The statistics under the heading "Estl 
mated Total" represent the above plus the esti- 
mated offense totals for agencies submitting less 
than 3 months of offense reports. The tabular 
breakdowns are according to UCR definitions 
(App. II).

Table Construction 

"Cities and Towns" are defined to be agencies in 
Population Groups 1 through V (App. III). The 
population is based on July 1, 1979, population 
estimations of each agency. 

Student enrollment figures are adjusted by convert- 
ing part-time students into full-time equivalents 
(FTEs) as provided by the National Center for 
Education Statistics of the U. S. Department of 
Health, Education, and Welfare. FTEs are com- 
puted by taking the fraction of part-time students 
by the prescribed method in the "Higher Educa- 
tion General Information Survey (HEGIS XII)." 

"Suburban Counties" are defined to be the area 
covered by all noncity agencies within an SMSA 
(App. III). 



"Rural Counties" are those outside SMSAs and not 
covered by city police agencies (App. III). 
Population classifications of rural counties are 
based on July 1, 1979, population estimations of 
individual agencies. 

The 1979 crime trend statistics are 2-year compari- 
sons based on 1979 reported crime activity. Only 
common reported months for individual agencies 
are included in 1979 trend calculations. Popula- 
tions represent July 1, 1979, estimations of indi- 
vidual agencies. The tabular breakdowns are 
according to UCR crime definitions (App. II) 
and population classifications (App. III). Note 
that "Suburban and Non-Suburban Cities" repre- 
sents all city agencies other than core cities 
SMSAs. 

The 1979 crime rates are the ratios of the aggregated 
1979 crime volumes and the aggregated 1979 
populations of the contributing agencies. Popula- 
tion statistics represent July 1, 1979, estimations 
of individual agencies. The tabular breakdowns 
are according to UCR crime definitions (App. II) 
and population classifications (App. III). Note 
that "Suburban and Non-Suburban" represents 
all city agencies other than core cities 
SMSAs. 

Offense total and value lost total are computed for 
all Index offense categories other than aggravat- 
ed assault. Percent distribution is derived based 
on offense total with each Index offense. Trend 
statistics are derived based on agencies with at 
least 6 common months complete for 1978 and 
1979. 

The 1979 clearance rates are based on offense and 
clearance volume totals of the contributing agen- 
cies for 1979. Population statistics represent July 
1, 1979, estimations of individual agencies. The 
tabular breakdowns are according to UCR crime 
definitions (App. II) and population classifica- 
tions (App. III),

The arrest totals presented are national estimates 
based on the arrest statistics of all law enforce- 
ment agencies in the UCR Program (including 
those submitting less than 12 months). A corre- 
sponding population is used when less than 12 
months are used. The "Total 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 volumes within 
each of the eight population groups (App. III). 
Each group's estimate is the reported volume (as 
shown in Table 25) divided by the percent of 
total group population reporting (as estimated 
for July 1, 1979). 

For example, in the Rural Area, agencies reporting, 
including those submitting less than 12 months, 
represent 47,872 burglary arrests and 84.2% of 
the total rural population. The rural burglary 
arrest total is estimated to be:

APPENDIX II 
OFFENSES IN UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING 



Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting are divided into 
two groupings designated as Part I and Part II crimes. 
Information on the number of Part I offenses known to 
law enforcement, the number cleared by arrest or excep- 
tional means, and the number of persons arrested is 
reported monthly. Arrest data are reported for Part I and 
Part II offenses. 

The Part I offenses are as follows: 

1. Criminal homicide. — a. Murder and nonnegligent 
manslaughter: the willful (nonnegligent) killing of one 
human being by another. Deaths caused by negligence, 
attempts to kill, assaults to kill, suicides, accidental deaths, 
and justifiable homicides are excluded. Justifiable homi- 
cides are limited to: (1) the killing of a felon by a law 
enforcement officer in the line of duty; and (2) the killing 
of a felon by a private citizen, b. Manslaughter by 
negligence: the killing of another person through gross 
negligence. Excludes traffic fatalities. While manslaughter 
by negligence is a Part I crime, it is not included in the 
Crime Index. 

2. Forcible rape. — The carnal knowledge of a 
female forcibly and against her will. Included are rapes by 
force and attempts or assaults to rape. Statutory offenses 
(no force used — victim under age of consent) are exclud- 
ed. 

3. Robbery. — The taking or attempting to take 
anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a 
person or persons by force or threat of force or violence 
and/or by putting the victim in fear. 

4. Aggravated assault. — An unlawful attack by one 
person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or 
aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault usually is 
accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to 
produce death or great bodily harm. Simple assaults are 
excluded. 

5. Burglary — breaking or entering. — The unlawful 
entry of a structure to commit a felony or a theft. 
Attempted forcible entry is included. 

6. Larceny-theft (except motor vehicle theft). — The 
unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of 
property from the possession or constructive possession of 
another. Examples are thefts of bicycles or automobile 
accessories, shoplifting, pocket-picking, or the stealing of 
any property or article which is not taken by force and 



violence or by fraud. Attempted larcenies are included. 
Embezzlement, "con" games, forgery, worthless checks, 
etc., are excluded. 

7. Motor vehicle theft. — The theft or attempted 
theft of a motor vehicle. A motor vehicle is self-propelled 
and runs on the surface and not on rails. Specifically 
excluded from this category are motorboats, construction 
equipment, airplanes, and farming equipment. 

8. Arson. — Any willful or malicious burning or 
attempt to burn, with or without intent to defraud, a 
dwelling house, public building, motor vehicle or aircraft, 
personal property of another, etc. 

The Part II offenses are: 

9. Other assaults (simple). — Assaults or attempted 
assaults where no weapon was used or which did not 
result in serious or aggravated injury to the victim. 

10. Forgery and counterfeiting. — Making, altering, 
uttering, or possessing, with intent to defraud, anything 
false which is made to appear true. Attempts are included.

APPENDIX III 
UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING AREA DEFINITIONS 



Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area 

The geographic presentation of Uniform Crime Report- 
ing (UCR) data consistently relies on the concept of the 
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA). Compre- 
hension of this term is crucial to understanding the related 
UCR concepts of "Other Cities" and "Rural Area" to be 
discussed later in this appendix. 

An SMSA is a statistical construct used to define 
metropolitan areas in a uniform manner. It is an integrated 
economic and social unit with a recognized large popula- 
tion nucleus. The SMSA concept was developed to 
facilitate the analysis and dissemination of statistical 
information on metropolitan areas. The primary objective 
in establishing standard definitions of these areas was to 
make it possible for Federal statistical agencies to utilize 
the same boundaries when publishing statistical data. 

An SMSA always includes a central city (cities) of 
specified population (generally over 50,000) and the 
county (counties) in which it is located. In addition, an 
SMSA also includes contiguous counties when the eco- 
nomic and social relationship between the central and 
contiguous counties meet specified criteria of metropoli- 
tan character and integration. An SMSA may cross state 
lines. In New England, SMSAs are composed of cities and 
towns instead of counties. 

The Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards 
of the U. S. Department of Commerce has responsibility 
for designating and defining SMSAs. It in turn is advised 
by the Federal Committee on Standard Metropolitan 
Statistical Areas. The detailed criteria followed in estab- 
lishing and defining SMSAs can be found in the U. S. 
Department of Commerce publication. Standard Metropol- 
itan Statistical Areas, revised edition 1975. 

Community Types 

Uniform Crime Reporting data are often presented 
using three community type aggregations. These are 
SMSA, Other Cities, and Rural Area. 

SMSAs as used in this publication made up approxi- 
mately 73 percent of the total United States' population in 
1979. A suburban area includes cities with less than 50,000 



inhabitants in addition to counties (unincorporated areas) 
within the SMSA. Suburban areas, therefore, can be 
subdivided into suburban cities and suburban counties. 

Other Cities are those outside SMSAs. Most of these 
places are incorporated and comprised 12 percent of the 
1979 population of the United States. 

A Rural Area is that portion of a county outside the 
SMSA excluding areas covered by city police agencies. 
For crime reporting purposes, rural areas are made up of 
unincorporated portions of counties outside urban places 
and SMSAs. They comprised 15 percent of the 1979 
national population. 

The following diagram illustrates the aforementioned 
discussion of the community types. '

'In New England, "town" instead of "county" is used to describe 
SMSAs. These towns do not coincide generally with established 
reporting units; therefore, metropolitan state economic areas are used in 



Population Groups 

For purposes of statistical presentation, the cities and 
counties in the United States are divided into groups based 
on population size. The population group classifications 
used by the UCR Program are as follows: 

Political Population 

Population Group Label Range 

I City 250,000 and over 

II City 100,000 to 

249,999 

III City 50,000 to 99,999 

IV City 25,000 to 49,999 

V City 10,000 to 24,999 

VI City Less than 10,000 

VIII (Rural Area) County N/A 

IX (Suburban County) . . . County N/A 

The major source of UCR data is the individual law 
enforcement agency. The number of agencies included in 
each population group will vary slightly from year to year 
due to population growth, geopolitical consolidation, 

tabulations for New England since they encompass an entire county or 

counties.

Geographically, the United States is divided into four 
regions: the Northeastern States, the North Central States,

APPENDIX IV 
10-YEAR TRENDS IN CRIME, 1970-1979 



This appendix graphically presents quarterly crime data 
for the 10-year period, 1970-1979, and examines basic 
crime trends. The approach taken herein supplements 
percent-change comparisons for two 1-year periods and 
yields a generalized perspective of the movement of 
crime. 

While a particular offense may possess a substantial 
number of traits or attributes in common with other 
crimes, each offense has its own unique patterns and 
characteristics. Because of the emphasis on the individual- 
ity of each crime in the appendix, no higher level of 
aggregation was introduced. 

Quarterly crime rates for each Index offense were 
computed for the period 1970-1979, utilizing data from 
agencies having submitted all 12 months of crime reports 
and the corresponding agency jurisdictional populations. 
Statistics on arson are not included in the appendix since 
the collection of data on this crime did not commence 
until April of 1979. Population figures were not adjusted 
to account for possible quarterly changes. 

The first quarter of 1970 was selected as the base period 
and the quarterly crime rate corresponding to that period 
was equated to 100. The "relative" quarterly crime rates 



resulting from the standardization process are presented in 
both graphic and tabular form. 

In order to eliminate the effect of seasonal fluctuations, 
4-quarter moving averages were computed for each Index 
crime. The results of these computations are presented in 
both graphic and tabular form. On the graphs, the moving 
average curves are depicted as smooth dotted lines that 
pass through the quarterly data. 

Murder Trend 

During the 10-year period, 1970-1979, the relative 
crime rates for murder fluctuated between 100 and 153. 
Although seasonality was not pronounced, murder consis- 
tently peaked in the second half of the year throughout 
the 10-year period under consideration. Yearly highs 
occurred in the fourth quarter for 5 of the 10 years, 
occurred jointly in the third and fourth quarters for 3 
years, and occurred in the third quarter for 2 years. 
Overall, there was a gradual increase in murder from 1970 
to 1974, followed by a slight decline during 1975 and 
1976. A gradual upward trend commenced in 1977 and 
continued through 1979. It is anticipated that this upward 
movement will continue into 1980.

Forcible Rape Trend 

Between 1970 and 1979, the relative crime rate for 
forcible rape ranged from 100 to 221. The low occurred in 
the first quarter of 1970, while the high was reached in the 
third quarter of 1979. Forcible rape invariably peaked in 
the summer months and was lowest in the winter months 
of the year. As can be seen from the accompanying chart, 



quarterly forcible rape rates are distinguished by undula- 
tions with pointed peaks and troughs. 

The moving average indicated (except for a slight 
decline during 1975 and 1976) a steady increase between 
1970 and 1979. Further, forcible rape showed the highest 
increase among all Crime Index offenses during the past 
decade. The trend has shown no sign of mitigating.

Robbery Trend 

From 1970 to 1979, the relative crime rate for robbery 
varied between 91 and 152. The high was reached in the 
fourth quarter of 1974, while the low occurred in the 
second quarter of 1978. Although seasonality was general- 
ly mild, robbery consistently peaked in the fourth quarter 
and bottomed out in the second quarter of the year. It will 
be noted that the configuration of quarterly robbery rates 
is generally characterized by single peaks and troughs. 



According to the moving average figures, there was a 
period of relative stability between 1970 and 1973. The 
robbery trend began to increase toward the end of 1973 
and continued to rise until the close of 1974. This upward 
movement was followed by a steady decline between 1975 
and 1977, which gave way to an upward trend that lasted 
into 1979. This latter trend increase, however, has not yet 
reached the peak experienced in 1974.

Aggravated Assault Trend 

During the decade, 1970 to 1979, the relative crime rate 
for aggravated assault oscillated between 100 and 201. 
The rate was lowest in the first quarter of 1970 and 
reached a peak in the third quarter of 1979. Aggravated 
assault was consistently highest in the third quarter and 
lowest in the first quarter of each year. A review of the 



accompanying graph shows that undulations for quarterly 
aggravated assault rates were marked by single peaks and 
troughs. 

The moving average trend generally displayed a steady 
upward movement, commencing in the first quarter of 
1970 and continuing through the end of 1979. This steady 
increase shows no signs of abating.

Burglary Trend 

The relative crime rate for burglary fluctuated between 
99 and 148. Burglary peaked in the second half of each 
year throughout the entire decade under study. In 
reviewing the graph, it will be observed that the burglary 
trend data were generally characterized by dual peaks and 
troughs. 



The moving average curve began to rise in 1973. This 
uptrend lasted until the end of 1974, at which time the 
data began to show a decline. This decrease continued 
until the end of 1976, after which the curve remained 
relatively stable.

Larceny-theft Trend 

Larceny-theft relative crime rates fluctuated between 
92 and 160 during the years 1970 to 1979. The low 
occurred in the first quarter of 1973, while the high was 
reached in the third quarters of 1975 and 1979. Larceny- 
theft consistently peaked in the third quarter of each year 
and bottomed out in the first quarter of all years but 1976, 
when the annual low occurred in the fourth quarter. 



Generally, the configuration of quarterly larceny-theft 
rates was characterized by singular peaks and troughs. 

The moving average curve for larceny-theft began to 
rise at the start of 1973 and continued its ascent until early 
1976. Subsequently, a 2-year decline was experienced, but 
a rise again ensued, commencing in 1978 and continuing 
into 1979.

Motor Vehicle Theft Trend 

The relative crime rates for motor vehicle theft fluctu- 
ated between 84 and 1 12, the lowest range of variation of 
any Index offense during the 10-year period under study. 
The low was reached in the first quarter of 1978, while the 
peak was reached in the fourth quarter of 1970 and the 
third quarter of 1971. Generally, motor vehicle theft 
peaked in the third quarter of each year. Only in 1970, 
when the relative crime rate peaked in the fourth quarter. 



was this not the case. The low for motor vehicle theft 
consistently occurred in the first quarter of the year. It 
will be noted from a review of the graph that the relative 
crime rate data are characterized by dual peaks and single 
troughs, a departure from the types of configurations 
distinguishing the other Index crimes. 

The moving average trend was generally stable 
throughout most of the decade under review.
