The Survey of Criminal Justice Experience (SCJE) is a household survey of the criminal justice experiences of United States adults ages 18-64. Measures capture supervision (e.g. probation, jail, and prison) and broader experiences such as arrests and convictions. Researchers are able to estimate 12-month and life-time prevalence rates of respondents' criminal justice experiences. Data were collected between May 8, 2013 and May 20, 2013 via a web-based survey conducted by GfK, a leading market research organization. GfK maintains the KnowledgePanel -- a probability-based research panel representative of households in the United States. A random sample of 5,278 individuals aged 18-64 were selected from the KnowledgePanel and 3,260 participated in the survey. Along with the main survey variables, standard demographic variables, a series of data processing variables created by GfK, and a final sample weight are also included in the dataset. Demographic variables cover: age, race, sex, income, regions, education, marital status, employment status, and housing type.
