Unit of Observation:
Male, female and juvenile inmates held in institutions
listed in the 1999 Census of Jails plus jails opened after the census
but before the spring of 2002.
The sample for the 2002 survey was selected from a
universe of 3,365 jails housing 529,084 adult males, 67,464 adult
females and 9,449 juvenile (both male and female) inmates. The sample
design was a stratified two-stage selection, in which jails were
selected in the first stages and inmates to be interviewed were
selected in the second stage. In the first sampling stage, using a
target jail sample size of 460, six separate strata were formed based
on the size of the male, female, and juveniles populations in each
Through the application of weights and a series of
adjustments, the data for the 2002 survey were weighted so that the
sum of all sample weights would equal 631,241 (which was the total
number of inmates in local jails on June 30, 2001, estimated by the
2001 Annual Survey of Jails). The weighting procedure consisted of a
base weight for each inmate and four adjustment factors that produced
the final weight for the survey.
Mode of Data Collection:
computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI)
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Standardized missing values.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
