The unemployment rate is the highest it's been in 20 years. One might assume that as more and more people fell out of work, the crime rate would rise. But as the unemployment continued to rise last year, crime dropped to its lowest level in years. This is a look at U.S. crime rates and unemployment rates since 1989.
