General comments

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcemetn agencies submitting 12 months of complete arrest data for both 2001 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 2001 population figures for the Nation by applying the 2001 state growth rates to the 2000 decennial census data. The 2001 state growth rate was based on the difference between the U.S. Census Bureau's 2000 decennial census figure and 2001 provisional population estimates.
