Unit of Observation:
All known adult and juvenile facilities -- jails, confinement facilities, detention centers, and other correctional facilities in Indian country operated by tribal authorities or by the United States Department of the Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), in 2010. The original mail-out universe for this survey was 86 facilities. Prior to the survey collection, 7 facilities were closed or non-operational or out of scope, resulting in a survey universe of 79 facilities. During the survey collection, BJS determined that 4 facilities were holding cells and were out-of-scope, resulting in a final universe of 75 Indian country jails. BJS received responses from all 75 facility administrators.
Mode of Data Collection:
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:
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
