The purpose of this data collection was to establish a
current name and address listing of state and local government
prosecution and civil attorney agencies and to obtain information
about agency function, jurisdiction, employment, funding, and attorney
compensation arrangements. The data for each agency include
information for any identifiable local police prosecutors. Excluded
from the study were private law firms that perform legal services
periodically for a government and are compensated by retainers and
fees. Variables cover agency functions and jurisdiction, agency
funding, number and types of employees, compensation and employment
restrictions for attorneys, agency's geographical jurisdiction, number
of branch offices, and number of branch office employees.

Scope of Study
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.
