The NCRP collects data on sentencing, time served in prison and on parole, offense, admission/release type, and demographic information. BJS, the Congress, researchers, and criminal justice practitioners use these data to describe annual movements of adult offenders through State correctional systems. Providers of the data are personnel in the State Departments of Corrections and Parole.

For each type of information previously provided, respondents will require an average of 8 hours to provide information on prisoner admissions and releases, 8 hours to provide information on parole releases, and 8 hours to provide information on the year-end custody prisoner population. This includes time for modifying and re-running previously written computer programs, preparing input data, and documenting the record layout.
