Civil Legal Aid Data

W3.CSS

The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) is committed to increasing access to data to help grantees the media and the public understand the nature of civil legal needs and the services available to address individual and families in need. Below we provide access to data, visualizations, webinars on civil legal needs data and services:



Justice Gap Survey

The Justice Gap: Measuring the Unmet Civil Legal Needs of Low-income Americans explores the extent of the justice gap in 2017, describing the volume of civil legal needs faced by low-income Americans, assessing the extent to which they seek and receive help, and measuring the size of the gap between their civil legal needs and the resources available to address these needs.

The programmed survey instrument, codebook, and data files from the 2017 Justice Gap Measurement Survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago are available for download.

American Community Survey

The Data File is a compilation of tables that have been requested from the Census Bureau to be disaggregated at the LSC Service Area and State summary levels. LSC Service Area summary level data are unpublished, special tabulations. State summary level information are published by the U.S. Census Bureau and available on the Census Bureau Website.

Grantee Activity Reports

The Grantee Activity Report (GAR) is the largest and longest running data collection effort on civil legal aid in the United States. Dating back to 1976, the Legal Service Corporation (LSC) has recorded and reported data from our grantees in a variety of ways. GAR data is distributed to the public in the LSC Fact Books, which are now called “By the Numbers.” The data is gathered annually from all grantees on a calendar year basis. Grantees use automated reporting forms that are accessible via the Internet.
