The Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) at the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) compiles statistical information on defendants processed across stages of the federal criminal justice system. Under this program, administrative data are received from seven federal justice agencies each year and are standardized, maintained, linked, analyzed, and archived. The standardized data represent annual cohorts of persons processed from arrest to prosecution, through pretrial release, adjudication, sentencing, appeals, and corrections. The FJSP also enables analysts to link these records to track cases as they move through the federal criminal justice system.
