Review crime rate statistics by state and safety indicators by city. These are numbers for all U.S. States and hundreds of cities and metropolitan areas in the United States.
These reports include property crime and violent crime data divided into the following categories: Murder and non-negligent man-slaughter, Rape, Robbery, Aggravated assault, Burglary, Larceny and theft, Motor vehicle theft and Arson.
U.S. data for 2016 indicates an overall downward trend based on incidents from 10 years when violent crime was decreasing and property crime was decreasing. However, in 2016, there was more violent criminal activity than in 2015, indicating that the long-term trend may be undergoing a change of direction.
* The source of actual data on this national crime rate report is the FBI Report of Offenses Known to Law Enforcement for the corresponding year or years. Arson numbers are reported inconsistently. Zero values may indicate the data was not available. The projected crime rate data displayed above was generated from the trends and crime data available from previous years of actual reported data. The national crime report data for 2021 was projected from 10 years of actual data. The last year of actual available crime data, as reported above, was 2016.
The FBI cautions the data users against comparing yearly statistical data solely on the basis of their population coverage. The comparisons made herein are thus, only meaningful upon further examination of all variables that affect crime in each reported city, state or other reported jurisdicition.
