Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $353,396)

The FY 2018 Translation and Dissemination of Statistical Data Fellowship will enhance the efforts of OVC and the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to meet the crime victim services field’s need to improve the integration of statistical data and findings into the victim services practice.

With this award, the fellow will work to improve the synthesis and translation of statistical data and social science research relevant to the victim services field to inform policy and practice. Project activities will include gathering information on the current uses of crime and justice statistics; identifying pertinent research questions that could be addressed through statistical data, including the new Victim Services Statistical Research Program; and working with BJS, OVC and other internal and external stakeholders to develop a comprehensive plan for the translation and dissemination of information capable of addressing key gaps in information.
