Violent crime increased 1.3 percent nationwide while property crime fell by 2.9 percent in 2006, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. The agency annually releases statistics on violent crimes like murder, rape and robbery and on property crimes such as burglary and vehicle theft. Not all agencies participate in the UCR program and therefore are not reflected in the data.
