Presents findings from the 1996 National Survey of Prosecutors, the latest in a series of biennial sample surveys of the Nation's 2,300 State court prosecutors. In 1996, State court prosecutors' offices employed about 71,000 attorneys, investigators and support staff, an increase of 25% since 1992. Half of all offices reported an annual budget for prosecutorial functions of $254,000 or more. Work-related threats or assaults of staff members were reported by almost half of prosecutors' offices. Other survey data include types of nonfelony cases handled, number of felony cases closed, number of felony convictions, and the use of DNA evidence.
