- The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting complete reports for 12 months in 2005.

- Jurisdictional population statistics represent 2005 UCR estimates.
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 and county jurisdictions by applying the 2005 state growth rate to the updated 2004 U.S. Census Bureau data.
