A Comparative Analysis of Prosecutor Workload

M. Elaine Nugent, American Prosecutors Research Institute

ABSTRACT
The resources to address crime are not distributed evenly among regions, states or jurisdictions within states. Data from a series of prosecutor workload studies reveal the manner in which prosecutors, with differing levels of staff and other resources, manage to handle the array of cases presented to their office. Within- and across-state comparisons of the managment of prosecutor workoad are presented.
