BJS reentry data sources

Annual Parole Survey (APS) collects counts of the total number of persons supervised in the community on January 1 and December 31, and a count of the number entering and leaving supervision during the collection year.

Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) is constructed from source data files provided by the Executive Office for United States Attorneys, the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, the United States Sentencing Commission, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) collects individual level data on persons admitted to and released from State prisons, those in custody at yearend, and persons discharged from State parole supervision.

National Prisoners Statistics (NPS-1) obtains yearend and midyear counts of prisoners from departments of correction in each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
