Abstract: SINCE 1961, THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE STATISTICS FURNISH NUMERICAL INFORMATION ON THE WEST GERMAN PRISON POPULATION. A STATISTICAL CHART LISTS THE NUMBER OF CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES IN EACH OF THE WEST GERMAN 'LAENDER' (REGIONS) AND THE NUMBER OF PRISONERS ON A PARTICULAR DAY (1/1) FROM 1961 TO 1978. FOR THE YEAR 1978, THE FIGURES ARE BROKEN DOWN ACCORDING TO EACH FACILITY AND THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ITS INMATES, NEW INMATES, AND RELEASED INMATES, INCLUDING PROBATIONERS. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF INMATES IN EACH 'LAND' IS BROKEN DOWN ACCORDING TO THE TYPE OF FACILITY (E.G., SOCIOTHERAPEUTIC FACILITY, JUVENILE INSTITUTION). THE OVERALL WEST GERMAN PRISON POPULATION IS NUMERICALLY DIVIDED UP INTO AGE GROUPS, TYPE OF CORRECTIONAL TREATMENT (E.G., JUVENILE PRISON, OPEN PRISON), SEX, MARITAL CONDITION, NATIONALITY, PLACE OF RESIDENCE, CORRECTIONAL HISTORY, RECIDIVISM, AND THE TYPE OF OFFENSE COMMITTED. A FINAL CHART PUBLISHES THE NUMBERS OF WEST GERMAN INMATES IN SPECIAL INSTITUTIONS SUCH AS ASYLUMS AND DRUG CLINICS. THE NUMBERS ARE COMPILED ON A YEARLY BASIS FROM THE RECORDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL FACILITIES AND SUPPLEMENT THE STATISTICS PUBLISHED BY EACH 'LAND.' --IN GERMAN. (SAJ)
