Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $92,463)

The State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program is designed to maintain and enhance each state's capacity to address criminal justice issues through collection and analysis of data. The SJS Program provides support to each state to coordinate and conduct statistical activities within the state, conduct research to estimate impacts of legislative and policy changes, and serve as a liaison in assisting BJS to gather data from respondent agencies within their states.

The Arizona Statistical Analysis Center (AZSAC), located within the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC), will use SJS funds to collaborate with Arizona State University's School of Criminology and Criminal Justice to conduct a 2011 statewide crime victimization survey. Approximately 2,500 telephone interviews will be completed to capture self-reported victimization information and related data. Findings will be detailed in a comprehensive report that will be made available through the ACJC website. Two one-page briefs summarizing project findings and the reporting of victimization to the police will also be published to enhance the use of the data and inform criminal justice policy and practice.
