General comments

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from city law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete arrest data, including race information, for 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 city jurisdictions by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
