Department of Justice Datasets on Data.gov
Publishing high-value datasets that increase accountability and responsiveness improve public knowledge of the Department of Justice and our operations, create economic opportunity, and respond to need and demands of the public are a core component of our efforts to fulfill The Open Government Directive.

To date, we have registered dozens of datasets to Data.gov – a clearinghouse for data from the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. We will continue to register new datasets as they become available for publication. Every bureau, office and division at The Department of Justice has been asked to identify and inventory potential datasets for release to the public. This includes new data as well as data that may be in existence, but unpublished.

The goal of the Open Government Plan will be to improve the Department's fulfillment of its core mission by making appropriate use of more transparent, participatory, and collaborative approaches to its activities.

Needless to say, the nature of much of our work means that our law enforcement, national security, and client responsibilities will at times come before the important values of openness. At the same time, there will be areas in which we can better serve the public by making more information available, enlisting the public in our mission, and undertaking joint efforts with other governmental and non-governmental bodies.

Data Sets Underlying Department of Justice Reports

The Department has adopted a presumption that when an office or division of the Department publishes a report that summarizes quantitative data that the office or division has collected, the component will also make the underlying data available through an appropriate channel. The appropriate channel may vary depending on the nature of the data being released. For information that will be of value to the general public, the appropriate channel may be Data.gov. For information that is primarily of value to researchers, another channel may be more appropriate. One such channel that the Department regularly uses is the University of Michigan Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research. The ICPSR also assists the Department in preparing data for public release on Data.gov.

The Department has found that it is more efficient to post data to the Data.gov site series-by-series, rather than moving data according to the release date of the reports based on the data. Some data underlying Department reports will not be released on Data.gov because they include extensive personally identifiable information (PII). They will be kept on restricted access at the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD).
