Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics
arrow pointing down and to right About the Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP)

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), through its Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP), compiles comprehensive information describing suspects and defendants processed in the federal criminal justice system. The goal of the FJSP is to provide uniform case processing statistics across all stages of the federal criminal justice system. Using data obtained from federal agencies, the FJSP compiles comprehensive information that describes person-cases processed through the system. The FJSP applies uniform definitions to commonly used statistics, describing data from each stage of case processing. The data definitions used by the FJSP are consistent with definitions used by other BJS programs that report on case processing in state courts so that comparisons may be made between federal and state systems case processing statistics.
