FBI's Crime in the US
"The latest Crime in the United States providing local, state, regional, and national stats for 2006 is now available here (and only here) on this website, and we invite you to delve in. The report includes 81 tables in all, providing in-depth information on offenses, arrests, and police personnel.
At the national level, the report shows an increase of 1.9 percent in the amount of violent crime compared to 2005. The volume of property crime fell by nearly the same amount. While the rate of violent crime—473.5 per 100,000 inhabitants—rose for the second straight year, it is the third lowest total in the past two decades. Property crimes rates dropped to their lowest level since 1987." [RJ]
