Crime Clearance Rate Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

A clearance rate is the percentage of crimes reported that have been cleared.

A clearance rate is calculated by dividing the number of crimes cleared by the number of crimes reported; the result is multiplied by 100.

Calculate Percentage of Reported Crimes Cleared


CCR = [CC ÷ CR] × 100

CC = Crimes cleared
CR = Crimes reported
CCR = Crimes clearance rate


In 2010 there were 1,154 homicides cleared and 1,809 homicides reported. This equals a homicide clearance rate of 63.8 percent.

1,154 ÷ 1,809 = 0.63792 x 100 = 63.8 percent
