ISAC Data Dashboards
Use these interactive data dashboards to explore local- and state-level trends in crime and justice system performance. Some dashboards also have companion reports that further analyze and interpret the data.
ISAC and the Idaho Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program have collaborated to visualize data from the annual Crime in Idaho reports dating back to 2005. Idaho has been collecting UCR data utilizing the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) exclusively since the mid-1990s. Developed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the NIBRS program provides a national standardized method for collecting detailed, reliable crime data from law enforcement agencies.
Idaho’s UCR Program is administered by the Bureau of Criminal Identification, Idaho State Police. Learn more about Idaho’s UCR Program and view the Crime in Idaho report series at the Idaho UCR Program’s website.
UPDATE SCHEDULE: Annually, on or around July 1st.
ISAC and the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance (ICDVVA) have collaborated to compile, analyze, and visualize multiple sources of data that focus on the experience of crime victims in Idaho’s justice system. It is intended to be a resource for state and local policymakers, victim service agencies and program managers, and the general public to better understand the full scope of crime and victimization in the state. The dashboard currently includes data on community demographics, crime victims who reported their victimization to law enforcement, and crime victims served by a federally funded victim service program in Idaho.
UPDATE SCHEDULE: Annually, each winter.
This dashboard presents data collected by local government and non-profit agencies receiving funding under the STOP VAWA grant program.
Administered on the state level by the Planning, Grants & Research (PGR) Department of the Idaho State Police, the STOP (Services, Training, Officers, and Prosecutors) grant is a federal pass-through funding program authorized by Congress as part of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). STOP funds originate in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, and are passed through to local agencies to support communities in their efforts to develop and strengthen effective criminal justice strategies to address domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence; and develop and enhance victim services in cases involving these crimes. Learn more about Idaho’s STOP program on PGR’s STOP VAWA page.
UPDATE SCHEDULE: Annually, each spring
ISAC partnered with the Department of Criminal Justice at Boise State University (BSU) to build a dashboard displaying data related to violent crime victimization in Idaho. The Idaho Victimization Clearinghouse (IDVCH) Data Dashboard contains data crime victims who reported their victimization to law enforcement and/or received services from a federally funded victim service program in Idaho, as well as Idaho population and economic data.
ISAC also produced a report detailing the dashboard data selection process, an overview of the available data on crime victims in Idaho, and statistical tests performed on the data. Read the statistical report here.
ISAC partnered with the Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Program at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to build a surveillance system and public-facing interactive data dashboard to monitor indicators of sexual violence in Idaho. The system is designed to be a resource for those interested in tracking indicators of sexual violence, including SVP and its subgrantees. Starting with a list of indicators selected by the SVP’s Evaluation Advisory Committee, ISAC selected 43 indicators to include in the system.
ISAC also performed statistical tests on 14 indicators. The companion report summarizes the process of indicator selection, as well as the results of the statistical analyses. Read the statistical report here.
Developed and maintained by ISAC, the Idaho Criminal Justice Commission (ICJC) Data Sharing Platform presents performance measurement data contributed by ICJC’s Research Alliance member agencies.
The Research Alliance is a subcommittee of ICJC that directly supports the Commission in working toward two of its goals: (1) advance delivery of justice through effective interventions by proposing balanced solutions, which are cost effective and based on best practices; and (2) promote well-informed policy decisions. Its membership includes research and data experts from many of ICJC’s member agencies.
This dashboard presents data from a myriad of sources on the state of crime victim services across Idaho. Users will find data on violent crime victimization rates, the location of victim service agencies, grant funding for service provision distributed to agencies and the number of victims served with those funds, claims paid out to victims by the Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program, and more. Most of the data covers a 7-year period between 2012 and 2018.
The Crime Victim Services dashboard was one part of a two-part project funded by the Center for Victim Research. The collaborative effort between ISAC, the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance, the Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program, and the Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers also included a report on the availability of forensic interviews in Idaho. Read the report on forensic interviews here.
