The Bureau of Research and Data Analysis analyzes the wide array of data on the department's offender information system to produce useful information for agency staff, the governor's office, legislature, other state agencies, the media and the public. Examples of the issues the research bureau deals with include: offender population analysis and projections, statistical publications, conducting surveys, tracking and analyzing prison inmate and community supervision offender admissions, releases and daily populations; reporting on county jail detention facility populations, legislative bill analysis, research proposal evaluation, and the preparation of the department's annual report. Some of this bureau's other publications focus on subjects such as escapes, time served, recidivism rates, surveys, and sentencing guidelines.
