The Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) provides annual data on workload, activities, and outcomes associated with federal criminal cases. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) acquires information on all aspects of processing in the federal justice system, including—

  • the number of persons investigated, prosecuted, convicted, incarcerated, sentenced to probation, released pretrial, and under parole or other supervision
  • initial prosecution decisions, referrals to magistrates, court dispositions, sentencing outcomes, sentence length, and time served

The program collects data from the United States Marshals Service, Executive Office for United States Attorneys, Administrative Office of the United States Courts, United States Sentencing Commission, and Federal Bureau of Prisons.
