In addition to the unmatched transparency of regular releases of detailed case-level data, the State's Attorney Foxx and the SAO Data Team seek to make that information accessible and understandable for the community as a whole, without needing advanced technical expertise.
Before the end of State's Attorney Foxx's first year in office, the SAO released a Baseline Data Report — the first of its kind issued by the Office — offering an overview of 2016 criminal prosecutions data in Cook County, along with a promise to issue similar reports annually. Each of these reports provides a broad summary of the information contained in the SAO's public felony case-level datasets.
