Corrections Statistical Analysis Tool (CSAT) - Prisoners has been updated with 2012 data. This dynamic analysis tool allows BJS web users to examine National Prisoner Statistics (NPS) data on prisoners under the jurisdiction of both federal and state correctional authorities. Users can instantly generate tables of numbers and rates of national and jurisdictional statistics, from 1978 to the most recent year that NPS data are available. The web tool includes national and state-level data from the 50 state departments of correction and from the District of Columbia (until 2001, when the District ceased operating a prison system). The web tool’s pre-set quick tables show trends in prisoner statistics and provide links to key tables in the most recent BJS publication.

POW/MIA Databases & Documents (Federal Research Division: Customized Research and Analytical Services, Library of Congress) In December 1991, Congress enacted Public Law 102-190, commonly referred to as the McCain Bill. The statute requires the Secretary of Defense to make available to the public--in a "library like setting"--all information relating to the treatment, location, and/or condition (T-L-C) of United States personnel who are unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War. The facility chosen to receive this information was the Library of Congress (LoC). The Federal Research Division (FRD) created the PWMIA Database, the online index to those documents. The microfilmed documents themselves are available at the Library of Congress or borrowed through local libraries. In March 1992, the U.S. – Russia Joint Commission on POWs and MIAs (USRJC) was established by direction of the Presidents of the United States and the Russian Federation to serve as a forum through which both nations seek to determine the fate of their missing servicemen.
