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.

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.
