New York Court Project
Measures for Justice (MFJ) was established in 2011 as a nonpartisan nonprofit that collects existing criminal justice data, cleans them, codes them and runs them through a set of country-level performance measures. To encourage the use of its analysis by practitioners, government, advocates, the media and the public, MFJ operates a free data portal with filters by race, ethnicity, gender, age, offense type and severity, financial status and attorney type. This funding will support the collection and analysis of data from New York City’s courts with the goal of identifying success and problems with the courts’ policies and practices. The findings from this project will be published on MFJ’s free data portal for use by the justice and wider communities.
