January 1, 1981    NCJ 83985

The directory can be used by system designers to identify the output requirements of a correctional information system. The data categories include demographic information; security and control; institutional programs, services, and environment; and health care. Additional areas encompass administrative status; information on inmate location, movement, sentences, and prior offenses; parole and litigation; and inmate work assignments. A key word index lists (in alphabetical order) each data element used in each of the 163 exhibits. A format index indicates the location of 10 types of statistical outputs: area chart, bar chart, flow chart, line graph, map, pictorial chart, pie chart, semilogarithmic chart, surface chart, and statistical table. A technical appendix discusses the usefulness of graphic techniques and procedures for constructing various types of graphs and charts and presents numerous examples. About 140 references are supplied. (Author abstract modified)
