When social scientists look at nations comparatively using one variable such as crime, Income, fertility, or death rates, etc., They consider decline in these factors in percentages. In this article, Crime Rates in U.S. Decline. To give the readers to decide him/herself they observe the percentages decline in each sub variable in the following chart. The variables covered in the chart released in 2010, are: Murder,Fprcible rap, aggrivated Assault, Burglary, Larceny Thift, Motor Vehicle Thift and Arson. While definitions of these variable are known by social scientists and most people involved in such sciences like criminology, deviance, and criminal justice. It is easyto define them through the internet.
The results in the above chart View the Crime decline (percentages) in the United States 2010 report.
On September 2011, the released Crime in the United States report shows the incidence of crime nationwide decreased again, according to our just Overall, the estimated volume of violent crimes in 2010 dropped 6 percent compared to the 2009 figure, the fourth consecutive year it has declined.

Enjoy reading and analysis. And good wishes to other countries look for better life without terrorism, or crimes. I believe physical and spiritual safety is the ultimate goal in human life and nations. Could human brain come to compromise with other brains around the world to decrease crime and promote safety. That stil a hope. But it is NOT impossible.
I don’t know wither these variable show a real decline in the USA, or a decline in civilization. Because some theories connect between civilization and deviant behavior rates among its population. If the theory is true, then we can conclude that American civilization is declining. which I believe is not true. I will consider it as a healthy sign because reducing crime rates, is a healthy phenomenon in modern world for humans safety.
