    umm… I guess you just have to work out the amount of times crime occurs in society looking at a table of crime rates… otherwise… I wouldn’t have a clue… lol

    are reported crimes an actual show of crimes that are commited?

    thats a good 1. could be looked at a lot of ways.people who commit a crime are not always caught could be one view.another could be places with high crime rates have less crime then others because the people committing the crime would rather do it in a place where they are less likely to get caughtif u ask me, i would go with the first. many rapes/murders/robberies have not been resolved and many surprisingly not even reported. so i would say that crime rate recordings are not valid in depicting the actual crime that goes on in that area.

    It means to see how far back (in years) the records show. eg. all the way back to 1920?How many years were recorded

    Seems to me like you need to examine how recorded crime does not really show actual crime with cases that are normally not reported, like rape etc.
