Offense Analysis, United States, 2009–2013

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

Important note about rape data

In 2013, the FBI UCR Program initiated the collection of rape data within the Summary Reporting System under a revised definition. The term “forcible” was removed from the offense name, and the definition changed to the revised UCR definition below.

Legacy UCR definition of rape:  The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will.

Revised UCR definition of rape:  Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.

  • This table provides additional detail for the following offenses:
    • Robbery by location (such as street/highway, bank, residence).
    • Burglary by location (residence or nonresidence) and time of day (night, day, or unknown).
