More updated post-Booker USSC data

I was pleased to learn that there is new batch of post-Booker sentencing data available at this link over at the US Sentencing Commission's Booker webpage. This latest, greatest USSC post-Booker sentencing update includes all cases sentenced by close-of-business on September 1, 2005, and the cumulative data now cover 36,660 cases.  From a quick review, the latest numbers continue the basic stories emerging from the data released over the summer (details here and here, commentary here). 

Though the basic national cumulative numbers are the easiest to consume, the most interesting data continue to lurk within the circuit-by-circuit information and data on average sentence lengths, pre- and post-Booker.  In addition, I suspect that there are important "smaller" post-Booker stories within the data that might emerge from further disaggregation of the numbers by types of offenses and offenders.  I am hoping that the USSC, in addition to continuing to update these basic numbers, might also soon break the numbers down further as was done in this mega data report back in May.
