NACJD maintains a bibliography of journal articles, reports, and other published and unpublished sources that use data from our collections. Users interested in these sources can search our Online Bibliography of Data-related Literature.

Many of these publications are available in either paper or electronic form from the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.

About the Bibliography

This database contains over 37,000 citations of published and unpublished works resulting from analyses of data held in the ICPSR archive. Developed with support from the National Science Foundation, the bibliography represents over 40 years of scholarship in the quantitative social sciences, extending from the inception of ICPSR in 1962 to the present.

In most cases, analyses of numeric data formed the foundation for the publications, although in some cases the data played a less prominent role in supporting the research. Publications include journal articles, books, book chapters, government and agency reports, working papers, dissertations, conference papers, meeting presentations, and unpublished manuscripts.

The Bibliography is updated regularly. If you know of a work that was based on ICPSR data, please send us the citation at
