NOTE: All data in the above table is indexed to year 2000 and depict the change in border crossings each year relative to the traffic observed in 2000. For example, the 0.85 in 2001 for the U.S.–Canada Border means that person crossings were 15 percent lower in 2001 than in 2000. A number above1 (e.g., 1.02 in 2004 at Alaska) represents a number of person crossings above the 2000 rate.
