Strengthening the Criminal Justice Administrative Records System to address limitations in data integration between criminal justice and public health
This grant supports the maintenance and expansion of the Criminal Justice Administrative Records System (CJARS) to include health- and public-health-related measures in its planned web-based data portal; to expand data-collection efforts geographically (by state) and by types of criminal justice system procedures; and to increase the data linkages of CJARS data and other health-related data to the United States Census Bureau’s data network. CJARS is a data-infrastructure initiative at the University of Michigan, in cooperation with partners at the Census Bureau, and is leading the way to a nationwide, integrated data system that will support the next generation of criminal justice research and data-informed policymaking to improve the public administration of the criminal justice system in the United States. Deliverables will be an expanded web-based portal and data coverage and a report on efforts to increase data linkages.
