Federal Justice Statistics Program Data Series

Investigator(s): Bureau of Justice Statistics

The Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) provides annual data on workload, activities, and outcomes associated with federal criminal cases. 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 U.S. Marshals Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Marshals Service, Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, U.S. Sentencing Commission, and Federal Bureau of Prisons.

NACJD has prepared a resource guide for the Federal Justice Statistics Program.
