  • 1 The rape figures in this table are based on the legacy Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) definition of rape. The rape figures shown for 2012 and 2013 include converted National Incident-Based Reporting System rape data and those states/agencies that reported the legacy UCR definition of rape for both years.
  • 2 Suburban areas include law enforcement agencies in cities with less than 50,000 inhabitants and county law enforcement agencies that are within a Metropolitan Statistical Area. Suburban areas exclude all metropolitan agencies associated with a principal city. The agencies associated with suburban areas also appear in other groups within this table.
