Corrections State Statistics Information

a group of people working on data and statistics around a table with their laptops

This web page provides lists of resources related to local, state, and federal statistics displayed to help you see the current state of the corrections industry as of the last set of reported data. We do our best to find as much information as we can about each state, however, because reporting standards are not currently uniform across the nation, there may be gaps in the data you see presented.

Why is 2021 the latest information?

2021 is the latest year's data reported from the Bureau of Justice Statistics and FBI. Typically the data provided by these agencies is 1-2 years behind the current year.

About Budgets and Employees

Please note that there is no standardized guidelines for reporting budgetary and employee information. While some DOC's are very open with their data, other states and agencies are still on the path to more plainly laying out their agency information. The information here is what our agency was able to gather based on the information available at the time it was released.

About "Rate" Statistics

Each of these three, orange statistics is based on a "rate" of x per 100,000 people. So, if you see "503" on a chart, that should be read as "503 people per 100,000 people."
