US Sentencing Commission releases 2016 Annual Report and Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics
Via email I received this cursory report on the publication of lots of federal sentencing data that is anything but cursory:
The United States Sentencing Commission’s 2016 Annual Report and 2016 Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics are now available online.
The Annual Report provides an overview of the Commission’s activities and accomplishments in fiscal year 2016.
The Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics presents tables, figures, and charts on selected district, circuit, and national sentencing data for fiscal year 2016. The Commission collected and analyzed data from approximately 315,000 court documents for nearly 68,000 federal criminal cases in the production of this year’s Sourcebook.
I am hoping to find time to churn over a lot of the data in these reports, but already from the start of the 2016 Annual Report these data items jumped out:
- In FY 2016, the courts reported 67,742 felony and Class A misdemeanor cases to the Commission. This represents a decrease of 3,261 cases from the prior fiscal year.
- Drug cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in FY 2016, comprising 31.6 percent of all reported cases.
- Among drug cases, offenses involving methamphetamine were most common, accounting for 30.8 percent of all drug cases.
