2004 5,860

2005 6,632

2006 7,125

2007 6,000

2008 4,380

2009 3,326

2010 2,642

Just go to your favorite regression calculator, and if y(x) is the line estimating x years after 2004,

y = 7174.75 - 678.964x

So, for 2012,

y(8) = -972.77

It's not likely that we will get a negative value, and indeed we see that since the data rise and then fall, a linear model isn't very good in this case.
