The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that the number of Americans on probation increased 76% from 1980 to 1995 and that 3.09 million Americans were on probation in 1995. If the rate of increase continues in the same way for the next 15-year period, what might be the number of Americans on probation in 2010?
