Abstract: This Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin reports the number of persons on probation and parole, by State, at yearend 2001 and compares the totals with the yearend 1990 and 1995. It lists the States with the largest and smallest parole and probation populations and the largest and smallest rates of community supervision, and identifies the States with the largest increases. The Bulletin also describes the race, gender, and Hispanic makeup of these populations and reports the percentages of parolees and probationers completing community supervision successfully, or failing because of a rule violation or a new offense. Highlights include the following: (1) Adult probation population grew 2.8 percent in 2001, an increase of 106,542 probationers, less than the average annual growth of 3.4 percent since 1995; (2) Overall the Nation’s parole population grew by about 7,250 in 2000, or 1.0 percent; and (3) Mandatory releases from prison as a result of sentencing statue or good time provision comprised 55 percent of those entering parole in 2001, in 1995 they were 45 percent.
