The Criminal Justice Policies and Outcomes (CJPO) file contains data collected from 1986 through 1988 describing the adjudication of more than 2,000 criminal cases filed in 14 large jurisdictions in the United States. The CJPO file is offender-based rather than offense-based. The unit of analysis involves three elements — an offender, one or more criminal incidents, and any resulting adjudication process. For each sampled criminal incident, the following data was collected: related incidents, incident description, adjudication process, defendant, and prior record.
