Good news! The patriots and heroes at the FBI ,who work to keep us safe from Russian spies , Incels and the notorious hacker known as 4chan, have released the 2018 crime stats.
The Link to the full report is at bottom.Table 8 breaks down weapons use by type. Table 49 has arrest demographics. Or let me sum it up., FBI crime stats be racist yo.
For the second consecutive year, the estimated number of violent
crimes in the nation decreased when compared with the previous year’s
statistics, according to FBI figures released today. In 2018, violent
crime was down 3.3 percent from the 2017 number. Property crimes also
dropped 6.3 percent, marking the 16th consecutive year the collective
estimates for these offenses declined.
The 2018 statistics show
the estimated rate of violent crime was 368.9 offenses per 100,000
inhabitants, and the estimated rate of property crime was 2,199.5
offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. The violent crime rate fell 3.9
percent when compared with the 2017 rate; the property crime rate
declined 6.9 percent.
These and additional data are presented in the 2018 edition of the FBI’s annual report Crime in the United States.
This publication is a statistical compilation of offense, arrest, and
police employee data reported by law enforcement agencies voluntarily
participating in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
UCR Program collects information on crimes reported by law enforcement
agencies regarding the violent crimes of murder and nonnegligent
manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, as well as the
property crimes of burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and
arson. (The FBI classifies arson as a property crime, but does not
estimate arson data because of variations in the level of participation
by the reporting agencies. Consequently, arson data is not included in
the property crime estimate.) The program also collects arrest data for
the offenses listed above plus 20 offenses that include all other crimes
except traffic violations.
Of the 18,586 federal, state, county,
city, university and college, and tribal agencies eligible to
participate in the UCR Program, 16,659 agencies submitted data in 2018. A
high-level summary of the statistics submitted, as well as estimates
for those agencies that did not report, follows:
- In 2018,
there were an estimated 1,206,836 violent crimes. The estimated number
of three violent crime offenses decreased when compared with estimates
from 2017. Robbery offenses fell 12.0 percent, murder and nonnegligent
manslaughter offenses fell 6.2 percent, and the estimated volume of
aggravated assault offenses decreased 0.4 percent. The estimated volume
of rape (revised definition) offenses increased 2.7 percent.
there were an estimated 7,196,045 property crimes. The estimated
numbers for all three property crimes showed declines when compared with
the previous year’s estimates. Burglaries dropped 11.9 percent,
larceny-thefts decreased 5.4 percent, and motor vehicle thefts were down

arrest rate for violent crime was 159.9 per 100,000 inhabitants, and the
arrest rate for property crime was 361.2 per 100,000 inhabitants.

the FBI. These agencies reported that, as of October 31, 2018, they
collectively employed 686,665 sworn officers and 288,640 civilians—a
rate of 3.4 employees per 1,000 inhabitants.
Caution Against Ranking: Each year when Crime in the United States is published, some entities use the figures to compile rankings of cities and counties. These rough rankings provide no insight into the numerous variables that mold crime in a particular town, city, county, state, tribal area, or region. Consequently, they lead to simplistic and/or incomplete analyses that often create misleading perceptions adversely affecting communities and their residents. Valid assessments are possible only with careful study and analysis of the range of unique conditions affecting each local law enforcement jurisdiction. The data user is, therefore, cautioned against comparing crime data of individual reporting units from cities, metropolitan areas, states, or colleges or universities solely on the basis of their population coverage or student enrollment.
