  • This list has been updated by adding various surveys conducted in the previous three years. They are: the 1984 State Correctional Facilities Survey, the 1986 Juvenile Detention and Correctional Facilities Survey, the 1986 Directory Survey of Law Enforcement Agencies, and the 1986 Directory Survey of General Jurisdiction Courts. The prison sector has also been updated using the recently published American Correctional Association Directory. The populations section has been updated by replacing the old populations with 1984 populations for cities and townships and 1985 estimated populations for the remaining agencies. This collection supersedes ICPSR 7858 (1980 data) and 8489 (1985 data). The codebook is provided by ICPSR as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
