The counties are ranked according to the number of outrages (excluding agrarian outrages) per 10,000 inhabitants; the counties with the lowest rates are ranked first; the counties with the highest are ranked thirty-second. The provinces are ranked from first to fourth, in the same way.

Dublin does not include the metropolitan police area. Belfast, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford are included with their counties. The ranking of Antrim in 1871–80 is adjusted to exclude the crimes caused by the Belfast riots in 1872. If the riots are included Antrim falls from second place to a position between Carlow (fourteenth) and Cork (fifteenth).
