Description
  • Abstract

    This evaluation of the Drug Control and System Improvement Formula Grant Program focuses on the federal-state relationship and on the drug-related, crime-combat strategies that states must develop in order to receive federal aid. The primary goals of the project were to (1) describe state-established strategic planning processes, (2) evaluate the strategies, (3) report on state reactions to the program, and (4) make recommendations for improvement in strategic planning processes. Five-state, on-site observation of planning processes and a mail survey of all states and territories participating in the program were conducted, as well as a review of all strategy submissions. Variables in Part 1 include the Formula Grant Program's role in the state and its relationship with other agencies, policy boards, and working groups, the roles that these agencies play in Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) strategy, funds allocated to local criminal justice programs, and criteria used in selecting geographical areas of greatest need. Variables from Part 2 relate to the variety and use of state criminal justice data, difficulties in obtaining such data, federal grant requirements, allocation of subgrants, and input of various individuals and agencies in different stages of BJA strategy development.

    Datasets:

    • DS0: Study-Level Files
    • DS1: State Data
    • DS2: National Data
Temporal Coverage
  • Time period: 1990
  • Collection date: 1990-08
Geographic Coverage
  • United States
Sampled Universe
All United States states and territories.
Sampling
All 50 states, except Massachusetts, plus the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
Collection Mode
  • Since the data are divided into two files, only one of which includes state identifiers, it is not possible to use variables from both files in some types of analyses, with the exception of the comparison means. Clearer evaluations can be made if analyses are drawn from a single data file. Users must also note that not all items on the questionnaire are coded into the data, notably items which elicited an open response, as well as the following items: Section 1: Questions 4b-4e, 5-9, 11-13, 15, 17-22, Section 3: Question 23h, Section 4: Questions 16f, 17-21.
