Annotation: This report presents data on prison and jail inmates, collected from National Prisoner Statistics counts and the Annual Survey of Jails in 2001.
Abstract: This report provides for each State and the Federal system, the number of inmates and the overall incarceration rate per 100,000 residents. It offers trends since 1990 and percentage changes in prison populations since midyear and yearend 2000. The report includes total numbers for prison and jail inmates by gender, race, and Hispanic origin as well as counts of jail inmates by juvenile status, conviction status, and confinement status. For the first time, the report provides the incarceration rates per 100,000 residents in each State by gender, race, and Hispanic origin. The midyear report presents the number of prison inmates held in private, out-of-State, or Federal facilities. It also provides findings on rated capacity of local jails, percent of capacity occupied, and capacity added. Highlights include the following: 6-month growth rates for State prisons have dropped sharply since 1995; privately operated prison facilities held 94,948 inmates (up 4.0 percent since yearend 2000); and the number of inmates held in jail rose by 10,091, in State prison by 10,954, and in Federal prison by 9,245.
