Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics

Coming soon: BJS announces an innovative new dashboard for accessing Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) data. This new dashboard, an enhancement of the Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics (FCCPS) data tool, launches at the end of October 2023. The dashboard improves the core functionality of the existing data tool and, for the first time, enables users to generate data visualizations. Subscribe to JUSTSTATS, or follow @BJSgov on Twitter and Facebook for more information.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), through its Federal Justice Statistics Resource Center (FJSRC), compiles comprehensive information describing suspects and defendants processed in the federal criminal justice system. The Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics (FCCPS) data tool is an interface that can be used to analyze federal case processing data. Users can generate various statistics in the areas of federal law enforcement, prosecution/courts, and incarceration from 1998 to 2021. Users can also look up data based on title and section of the U.S. Criminal Code from 1994 to 2021. This data tool includes offenders held for violating federal laws. It excludes commitments from the D.C. Superior Court.
