Stats Posted April 14, 2022 at 07:00 PM Share Posted April 14, 2022 at 07:00 PM With the release of the March, 2022 processing activity, below is an analysis of data provided on the ISP Statistics Web page (https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) site (https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/nics😞 FOID/ CCL backlog Analysis Items (Calculations/ Data anomalies) noted on the ISP Statistics Web Site National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Illinois State Police data analysis A summary of the backlog activity is: Analysis for March, 2022 New Aps / Trans Received Processed Estimated Backlog Notes: Current Month Prior Month % Change Current Month Prior Month % Change Current Month Prior Month % Change FOID New Applications 14,091 10,665 32.1 16,100 11,923 35.0 6,435 8,444 (23.8) FOID Renewal Applications 14,929 10,136 47.3 15,950 17,708 (9.9) (3,356) (2,335) 43.7 CCL New Applications 4,471 3,387 32.0 5,039 4,561 10.5 3,187 1,997 59.6 CCL Renewal Applications - - - - - - - - - Not reported by ISP FTIPS Transactions 46,062 34,749 32.6 46,062 34,749 32.6 - - - Portfolio 79,553 58,937 35.0 83,151 68,941 20.6 6,266 8,106 (22.7) In an effort to reconcile the backlog calculated in the analysis and what the ISP calculates, and occasionally publishes as a backlog, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted to the ISP relating to the backlogs. The ISP responded noting that the total FOID backlog (open processing greater than 30 days since receipt) of 165,534 as of April, 30, 2021. In the analysis, the total calculated backlog is 168,409 as of April 30, 2021. ISP did not break the backlog between New and Renewal applications. As the difference of 2,875 is just 1.71% of the calculated backlog, the difference can be viewed as immaterial and a validation of the backlog calculation methodology. Until the ISP can break out the backlog between new and renewal applications, due to the immaterial nature of the difference, an adjustment will not be made to the backlog in this analysis. Additionally, in December, 2021 the Illinois State Police published, via a press release, that the FOID renewal backlog was at 7,800. For analytical purposes, the FOID renewal backlog was increased by 11,823 to bring the end of (month) November, 2021 backlog to 7,800.
