Note: In some of the 40 counties included in the 2004 SCPS study,
prosecutors did not screen out any felony arrests before filing charges.
In these counties, the SCPS sample cases are representative of all
felony cases received by prosecutors and any cases subsequently
screened out by the prosecutor are included in the SCPS dismissal
category. In other counties, all felony arrests were reviewed by prosecutors
before the decision to file felony charges was made. In these jurisdictions,
the SCPS sample cases do not include those in which a person was
arrested for a felony but felony charges were not filed. Weights are rounded
to second decimal place. Populations are U.S. Census Bureau figures for July 1, 2004.
