Because the city of Springfield has a population of less than 100,000, these rates are actually higher than the real number of incidents. For instance, the rate of Springfield larcenies in 2011 was 722 while the Springfield population in 2011 was 60608; this means that there were actually 480 burglaries in Springfield that year.

Crime rates from 2015-2017 were calculated manually as the rate did not match the known formula of the previous years. As such, these rates may not match official reports but can be found with the same method as previous years.
