Arrests, Nonmetropolitan Counties, by Sex, 2010

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

General comments

  • This table provides the number of males and females arrested in nonmetropolitan counties in 2010. The table also furnishes breakdowns of these data for each offense and supplies the percent distribution of males and females arrested among all offense types. 
  • The Nonmetropolitan Counties classification encompasses jurisdictions covered by noncity law enforcement agencies located outside currently designated Metropolitan Statistical Areas. (See Area Definitions.) 
  • These data represent the number of persons arrested; however, some persons may be arrested more than once during a year. Therefore, the statistics in this table could, in some cases, represent multiple arrests of the same person. 

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all nonmetropolitan county law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for 2010.

Population estimation

For the 2010 population estimates used in this table, the FBI computed individual rates of growth from one year to the next for every city/town and county using 2000 decennial population counts and 2001 through 2009 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. Each agency’s rates of growth were averaged; that average was then applied and added to its 2009 Census population estimate to derive the agency’s 2010 population estimate.
