Explanation of the indicator: Crime rates affect the sense of security citizens have about their communities. These rates can also influence business investment and residential development. Violent crimes are those offenses that involve force or threat of force and include aggravated assault, robbery, forcible rape and murder.

Notes: In some cases, County-level data are not available from the same data source used by the State. In other cases, County-level data are not available for the same time frame used by the State. In these instances, data sources and time frames were selected that most closely match those of the State. Due to this difference, it must be noted that comparisons may not be completely equivalent in all cases. Ottawa County data were obtained from the Michigan State Police because county-level data are not available for each year between 2005 and 2010 from the FBI. Michigan's data source is the FBI, Uniform Crime Reports.
