>  bug velocity (increase in the bug number divided by the time interval) over time

That quotient is a scalar.  Please use "bug rate" instead of "bug velocity".

Easy mnemonic: Velocity is a Vector, Speed is a Scalar.
"Velocity" has multiple syllables and multiple coordinates,
"speed" has one syllable and one coordinate.

[Irony: the original poster has an address @nist.gov
(US National Institute of Standards and Technology),
where they should know and appreciate the difference.]
