Revision to the Survey of Jails in Indian Country to include an addendum with COVID-19 related questions.No other changes to the collection are proposed. The Survey of Jails in Indian Country (SJIC) collection obtains aggregated administrative data from approximately 84 confinement facilities, detention centers, and other correctional facilities operated by tribal authorities or the Bureau of Indian Affairs. BJS started the SJIC in 1998 to track changes in the demographic characteristics of the tribal jail population as well as changes in the size of the jail population, jail capacity and crowding, and the flow of inmates moving into and out of tribal jails. These statistics are part of BJS’s core corrections statistics, as they contribute fundamentally to BJS’s mission of describing movements of offenders through the criminal justice system. Indian country jails are administered by tribal authorities or the Bureau of Indian Affairs, while the county and city jails covered by the ASJ are administered by local law enforcement authorities such as a sheriff or jail administrator. Together, the SJIC and ASJ produce national estimates on inmates held in all jails in the U.S.
