Annotation: This collection consists of statistics on West German correctional institutions for 1988.
Abstract: These statistics, which have been published annually since 1961, focus on three subjects: number and capacity of correctional facilities; number of inmates; and admissions/departures throughout the year. In addition, criminological and demographic information (type of offense, type of sentence, duration of prison term, age, and marital status) on inmates who were incarcerated as of March 31 are included. All of the statistics included in this text are taken from the records of the individual correctional institutions and inmate records as collated by the German Bureau of Statistics. The statistics on admissions/departures include not only new inmates, but, for the most part, consist of transfers between prisons. The collection also includes a survey of inmate developments from 1961 to 1988 and inmate statistics of individual correctional institutions and the individual West German Laender or States.
