United States Arrest Rates
To illustrate a report on the Racial Gap in U.S. Arrest Rates USA Today has created an interactive map which compares the arrest rates of black and white Americans across the USA.
You can use the Compare Arrest Rates map to discover the arrest rates of white and black Americans by police departments throughout the United States. The markers on the map are colored blue where there is a larger disparity in the rate of black arrests and green where there is a larger disparity in the rate of white arrests.
The data for the map comes from 2011 and 2012 FBI arrest records.
