Aggravated Assault Rates (United States)
This page catalogues information about assault rates per 100,000 population in the United States by demographics. By using assault rate instead of total number of assaults in a country, it gives us a better understanding of how common assaults are in a particular country. For example, 100 total assaults in a town of 1,000 people would produce a very high assault rate of 10,000 per 100,000 population. But 1,000 total assaults in a country of 1 million people, while a higher total number of assaults would result in a lower assault rate of 100 per 100,000 population.
