Abstract:

The United States Sentencing Commission makes available to the public through ICPSR and BJS, datasets on federal sentencings within each fiscal year. The Commission releases three datasets for each fiscal year, the: 1) Individual dataset; 2) Appeals dataset; and Organizational dataset. This presentation will focus on the individual dataset which includes the offender’s basic demographic information, a listing of the statutes of conviction in each case, and information on the application of the relevant guideline in each case.

The Individual dataset reflects the intersection of an offender’s criminal conduct with the specific factors used to determine the offender’s applicable sentencing range. Understanding the guideline application process is the key to understanding the Commission’s data and correctly performing analyses.

This session will provide a brief overview of data collection by the Commission, the guideline application process, the interaction of the sentencing guidelines and applicable statutory mandatory minimums, and an overview of the drug trafficking guideline. The principle drug trafficking guideline is the most frequently applied guideline and was used in the sentencing of one third of all federal guideline cases in fiscal year 2007.
