Thousands of Criminal Justice Datasets

The Hall of Justice project from the Sunlight Foundation has aggregated criminal justice statistics from NGO, federal, state, and municipal authorities and has presented them in an interactive format. Thousands of datasets are in this most valuable resource for United States statistics, many of them buried within the bureaucratic layers of government. Want statistics on women offenders – over 1000 separate statistical compilations are available; looking for women as victims –  try any of the 612 publications reports indexed under that term. This important tool should be the place of first resort when looking for authoritative data in criminal justice.
