Abstract: THE REGIONAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS ARE PART OF AN EFFORT TO DECENTRALIZE CORRECTIONAL AND DECISIONMAKING RESOURCES FROM THE STATE LEVEL TO THE COMMUNITY LEVEL IN MINNESOTA. THE DATA DICTIONARY IS ONE OF THREE REPORTS ON COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS TO BE PRODUCED FOR USE BY MINNESOTA PLANNERS, RESEARCHERS, AND POLICYMAKERS. FOR EACH REGIONAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (ARROWHEAD REGION, CROW WING AND MORRISON COUNTIES, DODGE, FILLMORE, AND OLMSTED COUNTIES, AND NORMAN, POLK, AND RED LAKE COUNTIES), A SUMMARY SHEET, SYSTEM INDEX, AND LIST OF DATA ELEMENTS ARE PRESENTED. THE SUMMARY SHEET PROVIDES A SYNOPSIS OF THE SYSTEM--THE COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS NETWORK IT SERVES, THE COUNTIES INVOLVED, THE OFFENDER POPULATION REPORTED, CONTRIBUTING PROGRAMS, DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION PROGRESS, SYSTEM HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE, ROUTINE REPORTS, AND DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS AND PROCEDURES. THE SYSTEM INDEX BRIEFLY LISTS THE SYSTEM'S DATA ELEMENTS, TOGETHER WITH THEIR MAJOR FUNCTIONS, LENGTH AND TYPE, AND DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENT. THE DATA ELEMENT LIST PROVIDES MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ON EACH DATA ELEMENT. A SIMILAR FORMAT IS USED TO DESCRIBE THE MINIMUM DATA ELEMENTS REQUIRED BY THE STATE FOR ALL COUNTY AREA INFORMATION SYSTEMS. SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION, INCLUDING A COPY OF THE STATE'S CRIMINAL CODE, IS APPENDED.
