New BJS Research and Development Papers Series

BJS has established a Research and Development (R&D) Papers series, which details statistical methods that will be applied to analyzing and reporting official findings from BJS's data collection programs. The papers examine the effectiveness of the survey methods currently used by BJS programs, investigate alternative methods to determine their appropriateness and application, recommend approaches for improving the efficiency and quality of the data collections, and present findings. Access the BJS Research page and read the paper, Developmental Estimates of Subnational Crime Rates Based on the National Crime Victimization Survey.
