Publication Prisoners in 1982

Stephanie Minor-Harper, U.S. Census Bureau

April 1, 1983    NCJ 87933

The male population aged 20-29 years is generally considered to be the most prison-prone population group. This group's size could continue to drive up the prison population through at least 1990. Other data look at State and Federal prison population growth, laws and practices affecting the prison population, prisoner housing and relief measures for overcrowding, female prisoners, short-term and unsentenced prisoners, and State prison population patterns. Five tables and two graphs are supplied.
