OJJDP has updated its Socioeconomic Mapping and Resource Topography (SMART) system to expand the scope of information available, make the system more user-friendly, and target the system's resources even more accurately to user needs.
SMART is a free, Web-accessible application that assists federal, state, and local decisionmakers in identifying emerging local issues and implementing both rapid response and long-term plans. The system includes archival data mapped at the national, state, county, census tract, and place and/or street levels. Data sources include the U.S. Census Bureau; federal agencies such as the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Housing and Urban Development; the National Center for Education Statistics; and the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports. More than 12,800 users have registered to use the SMART system.
Following are some examples of recent additions to the system:
