Provided by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the Survey of Prison Inmates Data Analysis Tool (SPI DAT) is a dynamic analysis tool that modernizes public access to the most recent SPI data (2016) with interactive visualizations. The SPI DAT allows users of all technical skill levels to readily analyze data, view selected charts, and create custom charts for a range of characteristics of the U.S. prison population. Filters can be selected to provide detailed results by specific characteristics. Users can choose to create data visualizations for persons in federal prisons, persons in state prisons, or all persons in U.S. prisons in 2016. Other modern features enable users to view additional statistics through the chart tooltip, display or hide chart footnotes, and download results.
