The report explained that violent crimes included murder, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

The FBI reported that violent crime as a whole decreased in all four regions of the country, falling 0.2 percent in the Northeast, 7.2 percent in the Midwest, 7.8 percent in the South, and 7.2 percent in the West.
