General comments

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of arrest data for both 2004 and 2008.

Population estimation

For the 2008 population estimates used in this table, the FBI computed individual rates of growth from one year to the next for every city/town and county using 2000 decennial population counts and 2001 through 2007 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. Each agency’s rates of growth were averaged; that average was then applied and added to its 2007 Census population estimate to derive the agency’s 2008 population estimate.

Population estimates for 2004 are based on the percent change in the state population from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2003 revised estimates and 2004 provisional estimates.
