Crime rates are typically calculated by number of total incidents per 100,000 people. 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 motor vehicle thefts in 2011 was 329.8 while the Springfield population in 2011 was 60608; this means that there were actually 200 motor vehicle thefts 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.
