Data you can search or browse and view at NACJD include: International data on criminal justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics-funded studies archived at NACJD, National Institute of Justice-funded studies archived at NACJD, and serial data collections.
The National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) is an incident-based reporting system for crimes known to the police. For each crime incident coming to the attention of law enforcement, a variety of data are collected about the incident. These data include the nature & types of specific offenses in the incident, victim(s) and offender(s) characteristics, etc. Incident-based data provide a very large amount of information about crime. Therefore this Web site provides a Guide to its use.
Cross-national UNODC crime statistics for over 120 countries are available on this page covering the period 2003 to 2008. Statistics on police-recorded offences and identified victims are available by crime type. Statistics on the response of the criminal justice system are divided according to police, prosecution, court and prison statistics.
