Question about English (US)

The number is a third of that of America.
The number is a third smaller than that of America
does this sound natural?

How do you say when you compare A and B and say the number of A is a third of the number of B. What sentence sounds the most natural.
Can you give me any specific example too? Say, crime rate: A is 10% while B is 30%
