1. Violent crimes are offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.
2. Property crimes are offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. Data are not included for the property crime of arson.
3. The FBI has suspended use of the crime index, first used in the U.S. in 1960, because it “has not been a true indicator of the degree of criminality.”
