Regions and divisions
The U.S. Census Bureau has established the four regions of the United States
along with nine subdivisions that the UCR Program uses to compile the Nation’s
crime data. The following table lists the 50 states and the District of Columbia
arranged according to the regions and divisions of the United States.

For the 2007 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 2006
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 2006
Census population estimate to derive the agency’s 2007 population estimate.
