Characteristics and Movement of Felons in California Prisons, 1851-1964 (ICPSR 7971)
Felons in the California prison system are documented in this data collection. The data are arranged by year and type of movement within the prison system, and include admissions, paroles, parole violations, suspensions or reinstatements of parole, discharges, deaths, and executions. Each record contains information on certain characteristics of the person involved, such as age at admission, race, marital status, education, military history, occupation, number of prior arrests, escape record, date and type of releases, and parole violations.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
