About the product
Criminal justice statistics assist in policy research and analysis within criminal justice systems. They are also essential for understanding and trying to shape social development. This manual sets out an updated general framework for the development of a national system of criminal justice statistics. The manual is presented in non-technical language primarily because of it’s broad intended audience. This audience includes users and producers of criminal justice statistics, managers, administrators, professionals, technicians, scholars, researchers, and others directly, or indirectly, concerned with criminal justice issues.
