ABSTRACT

Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics: 1997   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The 25 editions of the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics reflect the changing nature of criminal justice information as well as the growth of information technology. Advanced statistical methods and the needs and interests of the criminal justice community have resulted in improved, more complete, and more timely sources of information. These changes have been guided by 15 editors of the Sourcebook, beginning with Michael J. Hindelang, who in 1972 originated the project with a committment to four critical standards: comprehensiveness, accuracy, completeness, and usefulness. His vision continues to guide the Sourcebook staff and editors, including Ann Pastore, who has worked on the project since the first edition."
