The Uniform Crime Report (UCR) database is an important repository of criminal data administered by the FBI since 1930. In this work, we use recent UCR data to analyze how crime rate varies with population size for US communities. It is seen that the variability is very high, especially in the smaller settlements, and a major obstacle for deriving a model. To circumvent such difficulty, n groups are established, each comprising approximately 1/nth of the total US population, and disposed in ascending order of population. For each group, we calculate the crime rate, given as total crime count divided by total population, which can be plotted against some measure of the respective average number of inhabitants (e.g. the median for each group). It is seen that the results do not critically depend on n (5Biography A.A.C.C.
