The Bureau of Research and Data Analysis is responsible for population projections, offender population analysis, statistical publications, legislative bill analysis, research proposal evaluation, and annual report preparation.

Accomplishments in 1995-96:

  • Completed the creation of the Florida Criminal Justice Work force Database, which is the first Florida database to contain information about all criminal justice employees in the state.
  • Is now processing data requests an average of 15 times faster because of converting to a new statistical software package and server. The change saved the Bureau $52,230 in processing time costs during the first year.
