              NUMBER OF AMERICAN PASSPORTS
The number of Americans who obtained passports increased
more than 300% between 1974 and 2004. Although 9/11 had an
impact on the number of passport applications processed in
2002, the effect did not last long. The number of passports issued
continued to increase until 2007. There was a decrease in the
number of passports issued in 2008 and again in 2009. However,
the year 2010 has witnessed a slight increase before dropping again in 2011.
