Both violent crime and property crime declined in 2017 when compared with 2016 data, according to the FBI’s annual crime statistics released today.

Overall violent crime decreased 0.2 percent from 2016 to last year, while property crime decreased 3 percent during that time, according to crime in the United states 2017,the FBI’s annual compilation of crime statistics. The information was reported to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program by more than 16,000 law enforcement agencies across the country.

There were more than 1.2 million violent crimes reported to UCR nationwide in 2017. There was a 0.7 percent decrease in murders and a 4 percent decrease in robberies from 2016 to 2017. Aggravated assaults increased 1 percent in 2017. The FBI began collecting data solely on an updated rape definition last year, and 135,755 rapes were reported to law enforcement in 2017.

The report also showed there were more than 7.7 million property crimes last year. Burglaries decreased 7.6 percent and larceny-thefts decreased 2.2 percent. Motor vehicle thefts increased 0.8 percent from 2016 to 2017.

As part of a broader effort to modernize crime data reporting, the FBI’s UCR Program publishes this data both in the report and in the Crime Data Explorer (CDE) tool. Released last year, the CDE tool provides a central place to search, sort, and evaluate crime data in a more user-friendly format than individual reports.
