This table (4.15) shows the number of arrests in rural counties according to gender. This study, which was conducted in 1999, also shows the type of offense in which the males and females engage in. The information of this table can be used to better understand the types of offenses that each sex is more prone to participate in and also the offenses in which there is equal participation. Of a total population of 17,880,000, only 770, 839 are actually charged with committing an offense. Males arrested totaled 613,615 of that population while 157,224 females were arrested. Of all the offenses listed, only two were committed by more females than males. Prostitution and commercialized vice was committed by 50.9% of females compared to 49.1% of males.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
