Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) Publications

 

The Bureau of Justice Statistics has long supported the establishment and operation of Statistical Analysis Centers (SACs) in the states and territories to collect, analyze, and report statistics on crime and justice to Federal, state, and local levels of government, and to share state-level information nationally. The information produced by SACs and their involvement in criminal justice projects has been and will continue to be critical to local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies and community organizations as they develop programs and policies related to crime, illegal drugs, victim services, and the administration of justice. More information about SACs is available here: https://www.jrsa.org/sac/index.html The Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA), through funding from the BJS, facilitates information sharing and collaboration among the SACs. In addition, the online community will also serve as a resource for JRSA, BJS, criminal justice researchers, policy makers, and other stakeholder to keep up to date with SAC research publications. This project was supported by Grant No. 2018-86-CX-K003 awarded by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. Points of view in this resource are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official position or policies of the US Department of Justice.
