The reporting of forensic results is a topic of crucial importance and increasing interest. Existing scholarship primarily addresses how forensic results should or could be reported. Our purpose is to understand empirically how forensic results are actually reported in American trials today. Given that many forensic statisticians are advocating for the greater use of probabilistic reporting, this research may allow us to establish a baseline so we can measure progress toward that goal.
