PREA Data Collection Activities, Calendar Year 2022

NCJ Number
Date Published
June 2023

This report is the 13th in a series that began in 2011. It fulfills the mandate established by the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA; P.L. 108-79) that requires BJS to produce a report, not later than June 30 of each year, on BJS’s activities to collect data on prison rape. The report describes data collection and developmental activities during calendar year 2022. It also details BJS’s efforts to measure the incidence and prevalence of rape and sexual assault in adult correctional and juvenile justice facilities, including through the National Survey of Youth in Custody, the National Inmate Survey, and the Survey of Sexual Victimization. Each of these collections is an independent effort, and they are not directly comparable.
