Description
  • Abstract

    This collection provides annual data on jail populations across the nation and examines the "spillover" on local jails resulting from the dramatic growth in federal and state prison populations. These data are used to track growth in the number of jails and their capacities nationally, changes in the demographics of the jail population (including sex, race, and adult or juvenile status), supervision status of persons held, prevalence of crowding issues, and a count of non-U.S. citizens within the jail population. A special addendum to the 1998 survey included data on the prevalence and results of drug testing and treatment in jails.

Based on information from the 1993 Census of Jails, a sample of jail jurisdictions was selected for the 1994-1998 surveys. The sample included all public and private jails in 789 selected jail jurisdictions and 25 multi-jurisdiction jails. The sample selection was designed to yield a coefficient of variation of 1 percent of average daily population and one-day inmate population. Large jails and multi-jurisdiction jails were in the sample with certainty.
