This publication presents 1992 public expenditure and employment data on civil and criminal justice activities in the United States.

Provides criminal justice expenditure and employment data on spending and personnel levels for 1992 and national trend data for 1980 to 1992 for Federal , State, and local governments for three sectors: police protection, judicial and legal services (courts, legal services and prosecution, and public defense), and corrections. It provides expenditure data for fiscal years and employment and payroll data for October. It also presents data on capital outlay, intergovernmental expenditure, and employment and payroll data by sector for individual State and large local governments. The data are from the Census Bureau's annual sample surveys of governmental finance and employment, modified to conform more closely to definitions and classification schemes developed by BJS for its periodic Justice Expenditure and Employment Survey. Data from the two series are not comparable; definitional and other differences in the series are discussed. An appendix presents definitions of terms.
