Bureau of Justice Statistics

Just the stats ma'am. Following the maxim of "do one thing and do it well" the website of the Bureau of Justice Statistics is an online cornucopia of data on the trends of crime. Information on the site includes crime and victims, key facts at a glance, and special topics. Anyone looking to support or debunk a theory on crime, victims, and the justice system is sure to find this site very useful. The site's search feature allows one to seek materials from within the BJS site or from the entire Office of Justice system and the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. The BJS site's publications section is an expansive alphabetized list of BJS publications in electronic formats. Visitors interested in keeping up-to-date on new statistical materials will appreciate the JUSTSTATS electronic mailing list.
