Note: Florida has adopted a "Forcible Sex Offense" category that is not used at the Federal level. Florida's Forcible Sex Offenses (FSO) include forcible rape, attempted rape, forcible sodomy, and forcible fondling. Users of this site will note that various reports will use either a Forcible Rape or a FSO category in Index Offenses. When Forcible Rape is presented it includes rape and attempted rape only while forcible sodomy and forcible fondling are included in aggravated assault.

Note: Percent changes in number and rate should be interpreted with caution. In small counties with low numbers of crime, a small increase in crime can produce a large percent change.

Note: Dade County was renamed "Miami-Dade County" in 1997. All county and jurisdictional data 1998 to date reflects this change. This change affects the alphabetical order of Miami-Dade County. Please note this change when downloading time series data earlier than 1998.
