2023 Michigan Data Landscape

Download    Press release      

In September of 2021, the inaugural ‘landscape’ report provided a primer of data on various aspects of the criminal/legal landscape in Michigan and set a baseline by which to measure subsequent reform efforts. This Landscape 2.0 project builds from the first in reporting and updating similar ‘overview’ data on both adults and youth. However, this report goes further by providing reports on prospective data collection in two areas: 1) Collection of admission/booking data in a dozen jails across the state to assess implementation of legislation associated with the Jail Task Force recommendations; and 2) a review of one county’s implementation, and associated outcomes, of a risk/needs screening instrument used with youth who come to the attention of the court. These two chapters not only illustrate this original data, but also lay the groundwork for future and ongoing transformative work across the state.
