    February 16, 2007

    3. Nevada

    4. Arizona

    5. Illinois

    6. Hawaii

    7. Oregon

    8. Michigan

    9. Washington

    10. Texas

    Lowest rates

    1. Wyoming

    2. Vermont

    3. Montana

    4. North Dakota

    5. New Hampshire

    6. Ohio

    7. Maine

    8. Iowa

    Is it possible that there is a relationship to criminal aliens in the state?

    Hey there Beckyal - you must have been reading my mind. I was wondering the EXACT SAME THING!

    OK, so I did a little research + some tweaking of lists in a spreadsheet:

    I think this gives some idea of the answer:

    First Column: Identity Theft Rates (Ranked by high->low)
    Second Column: State Name
    Third Column: % Illegal in Total Pop. (2000 stats. from FAIR originally compiled by US Bureau of Census)

    =================================

    1. New York 2.54
    2. California 6.15
    3. Nevada 4.32
    4. Arizona 4.93
    5. Illinois 3.40
    6. Hawaii 0.16
    7. Oregon 2.50
    8. Michigan 0.69
    9. Washington 1.61
    10. Texas 5.33
    : :
    41. South Dakota 0.32
    42. West Virginia 0.13
    43. Iowa 0.81
    44. Maine 0.18
    45. Ohio 0.35
    46. New Hampshire 0.19
    47. North Dakota 0.39
    48. Montana 0.27
    49. Vermont 0.40
    50. Wyoming 0.49

    Oh yeah, there's a relationship there.

    For you statistics folks, anybody wanna guess of a 'r' of about 0.6 or 0.7?
    I wish I had the entire dataset for all 50 states - then all data comparisons would be much more valid.
