From 2014 to 2018
The Survey of State Attorneys General Offices was designed to collect data on special topic areas. The first survey in the series addressed jurisdiction over white-collar crime and the second addressed jurisdiction over human-trafficking offenses. Because the roles and responsibilities of attorneys general vary by state, the White-Collar Crime survey was a census of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; the Human Trafficking survey was a census of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the inhabited territories of the U.S.
The survey collected data from the attorneys general offices of the 50 states and the District of Columbia for the White-Collar Crime survey, and the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the inhabited territories of the U.S. for the Human Trafficking survey. The primary mode of data collection was web survey, though hard copies were provided upon request.
