Date & Last Updated: This data reflects the 2022 calendar year and was released from the FBI in September, 2023; this is the most current data available.
Houghton crime rates are not available from the FBI's UCR (uniform crime reporting) program, as a result, estimates are displayed in the table above. The crime reporting program from the FBI does cover more than 98% of the larger metropolitan areas, which represents more than 309 million U.S. residents. This data is gathered from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies which include tribal, state, county, college, university and city levels. However, the FBI does not report crime on a neighborhood level, therefore estimates were used to calculate the Houghton crime data. These estimates take into account the overall Tucson crime rates (violent and property), as well as multiple other factors which include: poverty rates, unemployment rates, income, educational achievement, home prices, rent prices and population density. To view crime rates on a block group level, the Houghton crime map below provides a hyper-local overview of all crimes reported throughout Tucson.
