2012 Crime Statistics by County
These tables show the most complete information available on the number of Index crimes and rates per 100,000 population for each county in New York State. County population data are provided every year by the FBI based on US Census information. Crime counts are based on official crime reports submitted to DCJS through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) and Incident Based Reporting (IBR) systems. Index offenses include the violent crimes of murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault; and the property crimes of burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The crime rates show the number of incidents reported per 100,000 residents. Rates take into account differences in population, allowing comparisons between counties. The formula for calculating crime rate is:
(Number of Crimes / County Population) X 100,000 = Crime Rate per 100,000
