TRAC, a nonpartisan "data gathering, data research and data distribution organization" located at Syracuse University (discussed in the August 8, 1997 Scout Report
) has updated its widely respected Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) site (free registration required). Under New Findings, users can view a summary of TRAC's latest analyses of the DEA's performance during the last five years. Users can examine findings and data graphics organized into three sections: Enforcement Trends Over Time, DEA at Work, and District Enforcement (for 1992-1996). Additional information is available on criminal statutes enforced by the DEA, as well as the sources of TRAC's data and the operation of the Clearinghouse itself. The updated DEA site is another excellent effort by this nonpartisan organization dedicated to providing valuable information to concerned citizens, the press, and legislators.
