Notes:
(1)  Only census region, state, and city destinations having a sample size of 100 or more are displayed. Due to quarterly data weighting by country and port of entry, some unreported destinations may have a higher proportion of total than those reported.
 
(2)  Due to low respondent base, 2005 estimates are based on 2004 plus 2005 weighted proportions applied to 2005 volume totals.
 
(3)  Percentage-point and percentage changes are based on non-rounded data.
 
(n/a) Estimate not yet available.
