Publication Prior Abuse Reported by Inmates and Probationers

Caroline Wolf Harlow, Ph.D., Bureau of Justice Statistics

April 11, 1999    NCJ 172879

Describes prior physical and sexual abuse reported by persons in prison, in jail, or on probation. The report examines type of abuse, age when the abuse occurred, age of the abuser, and the person's relationship with the abuser. It also looks at drug and alcohol abuse and criminal history of State prison inmates reporting prior physical or sexual abuse.

This is the second report based at least in part on the 1997 Surveys of Inmates in State and Federal Correctional Facilities. Other surveys used in this report include the Survey of Inmates in Local Jails, 1996 and the Survey of Adults on Probation, 1995.
