General comments

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete arrest data for both 1996 and 2005.

Population estimation

The FBI calculated 2005 state growth rates using revised 2004 state/national population estimates and 2005 provisional state/national population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. The FBI then estimated population figures for the Nation by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data. Similarly, the FBI estimated 1996 population figures for the Nation by applying the 1996 state growth rates to the updated 1995 U.S. Census Bureau data. The 1996 state growth rate was based on the difference between the U.S. Census Bureau's 1995 revised population estimates and 1996 provisional population estimates.
