Lastest Prison Population Data

The latest report issued by the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics, Prison and Jail Inmates at Midyear 2003, documents that the American prison population grew by 2.9 percent last year, the largest increase in 4 years. This report provides a wealth of additional information, including the number of inmates and the overall incarceration rate per 100,000 residents for each State and the Federal system; trends since 1995 and percentage changes in prison populations; the number of prison inmates held in private facilities and the number of prisoners under 18 years of age held by State correctional authorities; and total numbers for prison and jail inmates by gender, race, and Hispanic origin as well as counts of jail inmates by conviction status and confinement status.
