The New Mexico Statistical Analysis Center (NMSAC) operates within the University of New Mexico’s Institute for Social Research. Under the direction of Dr. Lisa Broidy, the Center conducts applied research concerning criminal justice issues of import to the State of New Mexico. Broadly, research conducted at the NMSAC aims to improve our understanding of the social and structural dynamics that affect criminal behavior, crime rates, and related social problems in New Mexico. In addition, working with various criminal justice agencies, the NMSAC conducts evaluation studies to assess the impact of various crime prevention and intervention efforts around the State. NMSAC's goal is to engage scholars, practitioners, and policy makers in dialogue about crime and its control.
On this site, you will find information about the NMSAC including our recent projects, reports, and publications. In keeping with one important goal of the SAC—increasing the visibility of data and research in policy venues—we also provide links to local, state, and national data resources.
