Idaho: Violent crimes reported

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of reported incidences of violent crimes by the population. We multiply the result by 10,000. Violent crimes include murders and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. In counties with relatively few people, a small change in the number of violent crimes reported may have a significant effect on rates from year to year. (See the note about data comparability below.)

In Idaho...

  • The rate in 2015 was 22 per 10,000 population, compared to 38 per 10,000 in the U.S..

Not all states and counties have data for all years.

 

To get the most out of this indicator . . .

 

Ask questions:

 

·         Does your county have a high or low violent crime rate?

·         Is this rate decreasing over time?

 

Look at other indicators:

 

·         “Crime and safety: Total crimes reported” – How does the change in the violent crime rate compare to the change in the total crime rate?

 

Dig deeper:

 

·         Look at the county rankings for your state to see how your county compares to others.

·         The Federal Bureau of Investigation provides violent crime data for specific offenses.  Be aware, however, that data are reported by type of law enforcement agency (city, county, university, other) rather than as county totals.  See http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm.

·         Take a Big Picture view of your county.

·         If you have specific questions, send us an e-mail.



Note: Number of reported incidences of violent crimes (murders and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) per 10,000 population. Limitation of the Data: The FBI's Uniform Crime Report (UCR) is a voluntary program, whereby participating law enforcement agencies report incidents of seven selected serious crimes. Local agencies may classify reported crimes differently, causing comparability problems at the community level. This is especially true for violent crime in smaller communities, where the small number of offenses may have a significant effect on crime rates from year to year. 2001 estimates of total population have been updated per the Census Bureau's updates. NA = not available. For more detailed notes, please visit the data sources.
