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."
