(2) Data for 1971-1979, 1985, and 1988 of this collection were also released as EXPENDITURE AND EMPLOYMENT DATA FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM: CJEE INDIVIDUAL UNITS FILE AND ESTIMATES FILE, 1971-1979 (ICPSR 7618), EXPENDITURE AND EMPLOYMENT DATA FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM: CJEE INDIVIDUAL UNITS FILE AND ESTIMATES FILE, 1985 (ICPSR 8650), and EXPENDITURE AND EMPLOYMENT DATA FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM: CJEE INDIVIDUAL UNITS AND ESTIMATES FILE, 1988 (ICPSR 9446).

Methodology

Sample:   All 50 state governments, a sample of local governments within each state, and special campus police of public universities and colleges. The sample includes all county governments, all municipalities with populations of 10,000 or more, a probability sample of cities and townships with populations of less than 10,000 selected according to the relative size of annual expenditures. Each case was assigned a weight based on its probability of selection.

Data Source:

official state and local records, self-enumerated forms, BUDGET OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, FISCAL YEAR 1987, APPENDIX, and BUDGET OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, FISCAL YEAR 1990

Extent of Processing:  ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Standardized missing values.
  • Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
