Abstract

As the statistical arm of the U.S. Justice Department, the Bureau of Justice Statistics is responsible for the collection, analysis, publication, and dissemination of statistical information on crime, criminal offenders, victims of crime, and the operation of justice systems at all levels of government. BJS maintains more than 24 major data-collection series and publishes more than 50 reports annually. Core statistical efforts include annual publications regarding criminal victimization, populations housed in prisons and jails or under supervision by parole and probation agencies, Federal criminal case processing and offenders, and persons under sentence of death. In this booklet information on application procedures for BJS grants addresses application content; required certifications; and financial, civil rights, and audit requirements. There are detailed descriptions of two fiscal year 1993 BJS programs, State Statistical Analysis Centers and Information Network as well as the Visiting Research Fellowship Program. Also included are summary descriptions of fiscal year 1993 ongoing statistical programs conducted in-house with data-collection activities performed by the Bureau of the Census and other nonprofit organizations. BJS is not soliciting applications for these continuation programs.
