The Source for Crime and Justice Data

How do I obtain a data collection from NACJD?

Most NACJD data collections can be freely downloaded from our web site. Information about how to download data and documentation can be found in the Help section of this web site or users can contact NACJD staff for assistance at nacjd@icpsr.umich.edu.

Selected NACJD data collections cannot be downloaded from our web site due to the sensitive nature of the data. If you are only given the option to download the documentation but no data for a particular collection, then you should read the Restrictions field in the study description for more information about how to obtain the data. In order to ensure respondent confidentiality, certain sensitive data collections are available only through a restricted access archive. While these data are still available free of charge, users must specifically request these collections from the archive. More information about this process and the necessary Data Transfer Agreement Form can be found in our Restricted Access Data Archive as well as in the Restrictions field in the study description.
