The data only considers cities that have a population of over 100,000. Therefore, states with cities that do not have populations over 100,000 were excluded from the FBI's data.

According to the FBI, violent crime includes rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and murder. The average U.S. violent crime rate was roughly 36.6 offenses per 10,000 people in 2014.
