Data files that are maintained by NACJD are available for downloading from the Internet at no charge. For information about contacting NACJD, see Datasets and Codebooks on How to Find BJS products.

The central mission of NACJD is to facilitate and encourage research in the field of criminal justice through the sharing of data resources. NACJD provides--

  • Computer-readable data for the quantitative study of crime and the criminal justice system
  • Technical assistance in selecting data collections and the computer hardware and software for analyzing data efficiently and effectively
  • Training in quantitative methods of social science research to facilitate secondary analysis of criminal justice data

NACJD routinely receives statistical data from four U.S. Department of Justice agencies:

  • Bureau of Justice Statistics
  • National Institute of Justice,
  • Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Individual scholars and researchers in the criminal justice field may also deposit data with NACJD, and interested individuals should contact staff for more information on this process.

Established in 1978, NACJD headquarters are located, along with the central staff of Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), in the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.

Federal Justice Statistics Resource Center (FJSRC)

The Federal Justice Statistics Resource Center maintains the Bureau of Justice Statistics Federal Justice Statistics Program database, which contains information about suspects and defendants processed in the Federal criminal justice system.

Currently, data are obtained from the -

  • U.S. Marshals Service
  • U.S. Attorneys
  • Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts
  • U.S. Sentencing Commission
  • Federal Bureau of Prisons

At the FJSRC website, you can:

  • find out more about the BJS Federal Justice Statistics Program
  • Access a data dictionary that describes each element in the FJSP database
  • Query/search the FJSP database to quickly obtain customized statistics describing Federal offenses and offenders such as the number of defendants prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced in a given year
  • Download Federal criminal justice data sets for more in-depth analysis

CD-ROMs containing all of the data archived at the FJSRC and the online data dictionary can be purchased from the NCJRS Clearinghouse.

Currently, the FJSRC and the web site are maintained by the Urban Institute through a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
