*Excludes Negligent Manslaughter
**Beginning in 1996 the definition of rape used by Colorado Law Enforcement Agencies was changed to more closely match the Colorado Revised Statutes. As a result the new definition is broader than the definition used by the FBI. Therefore, the total number of rape offenses may appear larger than the national average and the total number of Colorado statewide offenses reported in prior years.
***Due to rounding in categories, the total number of offenses does not match the actual rate.

2001 Estimated Population 4,418,410 - Crime Index Value 44.18
