Public comments requested on the Extension of a Currently Approved Collection: National Corrections Reporting Program

BJS encourages comments for 60 days through September 3, 2024, on the extension of a currently approved collection: National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP). Your comments on BJS’s request to the Office of Management and Budget, which is published in the Federal Register, should respond to one or more of the following:

  • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau of Justice Statistics, including whether the information will have practical utility
  • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used
  • Evaluate whether and if so how the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced
  • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The NCRP is the only national data collection furnishing annual individual-level information for state prisoners at five points in the incarceration process: prison admission, prison release, annual year-end prison custody census, entry to post-custody community corrections supervision, and exits from post-custody community corrections supervision.
