The National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) is a branch of the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan. NACJD acquires, archives, processes, and provides access to computer-readable criminal justice data collections for research and instruction. The NACJD website provides downloadable access to over 550 criminal justice data collections free of charge.

This site presents the 26th edition of The Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics, published in October 1999. Sourcebook  brings together data presented in over 600 tables from more than 100  U.S. sources.  Although the publication of Sourcebook is an annual event, its compilation is an ongoing process. As such, updates of tables and new data sources are continually received and prepared for presentation in the next edition. This site will be updated regularly to reflect these new data as they will appear in the next edition, which will be published by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the summer of 2000.
