      Quoting

      .

      The Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics has been produced at the
      Hindelang Criminal Justice Research Center (University at Albany, SUNY)
      since 1973. Originally published annually in print format, it is now
      available as a free Internet resource. Funding for this resource has
      been provided by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (U.S. Department of
      Justice).

      .

      As of July 31, 2012 the Justice Department will no longer be funding the
      project. Staff at the Hindelang Center are investigating possible
      commercial publishers for the Sourcebook.
