The NJRP enables the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Federal, State, and local correctional administrators, as well as, legislators, researchers, and planners to track changes in the numbers and types of offenses and sentences felons convicted in state courts receive. The NJRP also tracks changes in the demographics, conviction type, number of charges, sentence length, and time between arrest, conviction and sentencing of felons convicted in state courts.

The annual burden on the respondents is based on the number of hours involved in either providing an automated data file or printout from an existing data base, or manually transferring the information from court records to the NJRP–1 form. The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 8.013 hours per respondent. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The burden hours have been estimated based on the following calculations: 300 Respondents × 8.013 Hours = 2,404.
