How Many People Are Robbed Each Year?

Although the statistics vary every year, there are more than 350,000 robberies reported every year. Plus, there are approximately 2 million home burglaries reported each year in the United States.

There were 345,031 cases of robbery, including aggravated robbery, armed robbery, mugging, highway robbery, carjacking and extortion, reported in 2013 in the United States. Even though the number of robberies is decreasing with every passing year, according to the FBI, the statistics are still pretty disturbing. A person intrudes someone's property every 13 seconds in this country, and there are more than 2,500 cars stolen every day — or about two cars per minute.
