This maintains consistency with the 2009 NGTA report’s maps on gang activity.During the years the NGTA is published, many entities—news media, tourism agencies, and other groups with an interest in crime in our nationuse reported figures to compile rankings of cities and counties.In calculating the number of street and outlaw motorcycle gangs, the low end of each range was aggregated to generate an estimate for the total number of gangs and gang members.Prison gang member estimates were derived directly from the US Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and state correctional institutions across the country.The FBI and NGIC recommend contacting state and local law enforcement agencies for more information related to specific gang activity.The National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) prepared the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment (NGTA) to examine emerging gang trends and threats posed by criminal gangs to communities throughout the United States.In calculating the number of street and outlaw motorcycle gang members, respondents in each region were asked to select from a series of ranges of numbers.The median numbers of each range were aggregated to generate an estimate for the total number of gang members.
After further review of these estimates, the maps originally provided in 2011 NGTA were revised to show state-level representation of gang activity per capita and by law enforcement officers.
Better reporting and collection has contributed greatly to the increased documentation and reporting of gang members and gang trends.
Information in the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment-Emerging Trends was derived from law enforcement intelligence, open source information, and data collected from the NDIC, including the 2010 NDIC National Drug Threat Survey (NDTS).
NDIC annually conducts the NDTS to collect data on the threat posed by various illicit drugs in the United States.
A stratified random sample of nearly 3,500 state and local law enforcement agencies was surveyed to generate national, regional, and state estimates of various aspects of drug trafficking activities including the threat posed by various drugs, the availability and production of illicit drugs, as well as the role of street gangs and outlaw motorcycle gangs in drug trafficking activity.Weighted national, regional, and state-level statistical estimates derived from NDTS 2010 data was based on responses received from 2,963 law enforcement agencies out of a sample of 3,465 agencies.
