Judicial Criminal Statistics, 1938 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Judicial Criminal Statistics, 1938 The task of making up an annual tally sheet report from the court records is not a simple one. Court dockets and registers have been evolved primarily for reference purposes. They are not uniform from county to county or from court to court. They are not always uniform within the same county and court, as newly elected clerks may make changes in the detail recorded in their books. The matter of classi fying cases according to offense and particular method of disposition or type of sentence also is quite difficult and results in a lack of uniformity. Inasmuch as different clerks will have different ideas as to how an offender should be classified. There is seldom any other summary of court dispositions available with which to compare the tally made on the census schedules. Even if another summary is available, it is not likely to be in the same terms or units as the census reports. Further, if errors have been made in the process of tal lying, there is no way to check or eliminate them except to repeat the entire process.
