Larry, can your database generate an analysis of sightings
relative to population? A populous state like California or New
York might be expected to have more raw events than a sparsely
populated state like New Mexico. But perhaps N.M. has one of the
higher sighting rates when weighted by population.

(Maybe when the same analysis is applied to Wisconsin, it too
would move up in the ranks.)

My guess is that the "section of New Mexico" would be the White
Sands area. I know that a 1952 Blue Book briefing with the
Canadians had them stating that 5% of all their sightings came
from there, even though probably only .01% of the nation's
population lives in that region. In other words, when population
density is taken into account, the number of sightings there was

What about other regions of N.M. with military bases or
important scientific facilities, such as around Sandia base in
Albuquerque or Los Alamos or even Roswell? Also breakdowns by
time period would be instructive. White Sands no longer has the
same importance as a research facility as it did back around
1950. There is no longer a military base at Roswell, etc.
