Vehicle Theft In The U.S. Over The Last Half-Century

 Monday, December 8, 2014


The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) today released a national analysis of vehicle theft which compares annual statistics for thefts, population and vehicle registrations from 1960 through 2013. Just released FBI crime figures for 2013 show that 699,594 vehicles were reported stolen last year—a 58 percent reduction—from 1991 when vehicle theft reached an all-time high of 1,661,738. Over the years, the single-vehicle family—long the norm in America—became the exception as it gave way to families with multiple vehicles.
