Accessing and Using Research Data From the Data Resources Program

Data from funded research are made available for further analysis under the Data Resources Program and through the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD). This program provides opportunities for review, reuse and reanalysis of the data and helps ensure the transparency of research through replication of the results.
