Data Collection: Survey of State Attorneys General Offices
Status: Active
Frequency: Occasional
Latest data available: 2018

The Survey of State Attorneys General Offices was designed to collect data on special topic areas. The first survey in the series addressed jurisdiction over white-collar crime and the second addressed jurisdiction over human-trafficking offenses. Because the roles and responsibilities of attorneys general vary by state, the White-Collar Crime survey was a census of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; the Human Trafficking survey was a census of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the inhabited territories of the U.S.
