Infobase of State Activities and Research (ISAR)
ISAR is the only comprehensive electronic clearinghouse of its kind. ISAR contains information on Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) research and activities, and is designed to inform criminal justice researchers, practitioners, and policymakers by summarizing these activities, which are undertaken by the SACs on a broad range of justice issues.
Statistical Analysis Centers are state agencies that conduct objective analyses to meet critical planning needs and address statewide and systemwide criminal justice policy issues. JRSA surveys the SACs annually to determine the types of research and analytical activities in which they are involved, and the types of publications they produce. Survey results are entered into this Infobase.
