The FBI calculated 2006 state growth rates using revised 2005 state/national population estimates and 2006 provisional state/national population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. The FBI then estimated population figures for city jurisdictions by applying the 2006 state growth rate to the updated 2005 U.S. Census Bureau data.
