New Mexico Statistical Analysis Center

The New Mexico Statistical Analysis Center (NMSAC) operates within the University of New Mexico's Institute for Social Research. We conduct both applied research and evaluation. We also house the New Mexico Intimate Partner Violence Death Review Team (IPVDRT).

The applied research conducted at the NMSAC is intended to improve our understanding of criminal justice issues of import to the State of New Mexico. We examine the social and structural dynamics that affect criminal behavior, crime rates, and related social problems in New Mexico. One of the NMSAC's goals is to engage scholars, practitioners, and policy makers in dialogue about crime and its control.

The NMSAC provides evaluation services in a variety of areas, including criminal justice, civil justice, and education. Prior projects include measuring the impact of crime prevention and intervention efforts around the State; assessing civil legal needs; and evaluating education programs and initiatives at all academic levels. The NMSAC has experience working with programs funded by the Department of Justice, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Education, as well as state and local funders.

In addition, the NMSAC houses the Intimate Partner Violence Death Review Team (IPVDRT). The IPVDRT is a multi-disciplinary fatality review practice authorized by NMSA §31-22-4.1 and funded by the New Mexico Crime Victim Reparations Commission.
