2011 National Survey of Prosecutors.
The U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice
Statistics (BJS) has periodically sponsored the National Survey of
Prosecutors (NSP) to collect data on the resources, policies, and
practices of local chief prosecutors in state court systems. From 1990
to 1996, the NSP collected data from a nationally representative sample
of chief prosecutors that tried felony cases in State courts of general
jurisdictions. Since 2001, BJS has alternated between a census data
collection (2001, 2007) and a nationally representative sample data
collection (2005, 2011). For 2011, a sample of 475 prosecutors will be
asked to participate. More
