A lack of usable criminal justice data plays an outsized role in mass incarceration.
The United States criminal justice system is the largest in the world, holding nearly 25% of all prisoners globally.
In spite of its size and cost, the criminal justice data that is available is both too high-level and too fragmented to be useful.
It doesn’t provide the depth of information needed to evaluate the outcomes of specific programs or policies.
And different metrics are published by different systems at different frequencies, preventing evaluation against a common baseline.
Criminal justice analysis today is often done manually, which makes it expensive and time consuming. Delays can have significant consequences, including an inability to recognize trends as they appear.
