Abstract: Data cover the total incarceration rates, types of crime, parole violations, sentence lengths, and inmate ages. Findings show that the Kentucky inmate population is growing older and more violent, although its growth in age is consistent with that of the general population. Kentucky needs to plan for further changes in the inmate population.
