Welcome to the Washington Statistical Analysis Center (SAC). The SAC was established as a clearinghouse for the state's criminal justice information, providing access to data, publications, and links to other state and federal resources.
Under a State Justice Statistics grant awarded by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the SAC obtained statewide jail booking data from October 2009 through September 2014. Analysis of the data for 2010 to 2013 is provided in a new research brief available on the publications page.
The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Research and Data Analysis Division examines the characteristics of individuals booked into Washington state jails in 2013 who were recent or former clients of DSHS or the Health Care Authority. The report is available on the publications page.
A research brief by the Department of Social and Health Services Research and Data Analysis Division explores the question of how many juveniles sentenced as adults had previous contact with the foster care system. The brief is available on the publications page.
The Criminal Justice Data Book and CrimeStats Online have been updated with 2015 data.
A new page has been added for the Criminal Justice Consortium, a multi-agency workgroup convened to promote data sharing and collaboration among criminal justice-related agencies.
National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) data is now available. As of 2012, Summary data are from agencies that have not converted to NIBRS. Please note that NIBRS data cannot be compared to Summary data due to the disparate methods of reporting.
A new research brief, Juveniles Sentenced as Adults and Decline Hearings is available on the publications page.
