Date of Collection:
All local jails in the United States listed in the NATIONAL
JAIL CENSUS, 1988 (ICPSR 9256) with allocation to the strata based on
1988 average daily population (ADP).
Data Collection Notes:
(1) The Census Bureau used a nine-digit Government
Identification Number to identify each jail uniquely. This variable has
been broken up into four different variables. Users of the data will
have to combine these four variables to identify a particular jail. (2)
The questionnaires have changed since the 1992 edition. There is now
only one form, CJ-5, but it has been broken down into two types: one
for single-jurisdiction jails and the other for multi-jurisdiction
jails. These data were based on the questionnaire for
single-jurisdiction jails. (3) The codebook is provided by ICPSR as a
Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was
developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF
reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Information on how
to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided on the ICPSR Web site.
A stratified random sample of county or city jurisdictions
stratified by ADP as reported by the Census of Jails, 1993, and the
Annual Survey of Jails, 1994.
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:
Performed consistency checks.
Standardized missing values.
Created online analysis version with question text.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
