Court group deploys SPSS software

The National Center for State Courts, a nonprofit court reform organization, has purchased predictive analytics software from SPSS, which has supplied its technology to the center since 1991.

The latest purchase supports the center’s research and court consulting branches. Those groups use SPSS to examine data on court sentencing, judicial and staff workload, court performance, domestic violence research, and general court statistics, according to SPSS.

Overall, the center uses SPSS technology to analyze state court data. It then distributes the results to administrative offices of the courts, judicial councils, and other legislative and court employees.

The center, founded in 1971, provides education, training, technology, management and research services to state courts.

SPSS has also supplied software to the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics. The bureau analyzes information on crime, offenders and victims for federal, state, and local policy-makers.
