Annotation: This document tabulates age-specific arrest rates and the average age of arrestees for the eight Index crimes (murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson) and for drug abuse violations for each year during the period 1965 to 1983.
Abstract: The computational procedures used to derive age-specific arrest rates are explained, and the method used to estimate the average age of arrestees is delineated. Finally, two cases are presented to illustrate how the population is adjusted for consistency with Uniform Crime Reporting arrest data. Two graphs and 65 tables illustrate the data.
