Analysis of Publicly Available Court Data (APACD)

(Solicitation)
The Analysis of Publicly Available Court Data (APACD) aims to—

  • assess the availability of publicly available state and local court
    records
  • conduct a pilot study to collect these publicly available data
  • complete a full data collection
  • analyze, report, and disseminate the data.
  • The recipient of funds will assess a range of publicly available court data
    resources,
    beginning with existing state court data extracts and state court records websites.
    Then, the recipient of funds will progress to other potential public data sources,
    such as state court online repositories, publicly available court docket calendars,
    and state sentencing commission data repositories. The recipient of funds will
    evaluate the viability and cost of using such data to support the production of
    national estimates of court activity and recommend a nationally representative
    sampling strategy for such an effort. The goal is to produce a report that at a
    minimum, replicates the
    Felony Sentences in State
    Courts
    report series. BJS also
    expects to collect, analyze, and report on data on case filing. Applicants should
    become familiar with
    Felony Sentences in State
    Courts, 2006 – Statistical Tables
    and the data elements
    necessary to produce a similar report.
    All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on June 12, 2018.
