Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $26,298)
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 North Carolina Statistical Analysis Center will conduct the following activities: 1) identify and collect information on all arrest-related deaths occurring in the state each year and report this data quarterly to BJS; 2) analyze and report on the effects on the state's youth of North Carolina's juvenile age law where 16 and 17 year olds are automatically treated as adults and processed through the adult criminal justice system; and 3) continue to develop and maintain statistical and research content on the SAC website.
