The data contain records of arrests made by agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) during fiscal year 1994. The data were constructed from the DEA Defendant Statistical System file, and include only those arrests made within the United States and its territories. Suspects arrested by the DEA may immediately be transferred to state or local jurisdictions. The data file contains variables from the original DEA data file as well as additional analysis variables, or "SAF" variables, that denote subsets of the data. These SAF variables are related to statistics reported in the Compendium of Federal Justice Statistics, Tables 1.4-1.5. Variables containing identifying information (e.g., name, Social Security Number) were replaced with blanks, and the day portions of date fields were also sanitized in order to protect the identities of individuals. These data are part of a series designed by the Urban Institute (Washington, DC) and the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Data and documentation were prepared by the Urban Institute.
