The FBI, on its web site, recommends against using its data as a ranking for a variety of reasons and does not rank the crime rates for cities. [ [http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/word.htm FBI] ] In November 2007, the executive board of the American Society of Criminology (ASC) approved a resolution opposing the development of city crime rankings from FBI Uniform Crime Reports (UCRs). The resolution states the rankings "represent an irresponsible misuse of the data and do groundless harm to many communities" and "work against a key goal of our society, which is a better understanding of crime-related issues by both scientists and the public".

Retrieved on January 13, 2008.] The following table (initially sorted on the basis of reported murders in 2006) is based on Federal Bureau of Investigation Uniform Crime Reports statistics that initially became available in September 2007.
