This data collection includes tabulations of annual adult
admissions to federal and state correctional institutions by gender
for the years 1926 through 1987. The two data files have identical
structures: Part 1 includes information on male admissions, and Part 2
includes information on female admissions. The 3,348 cases in each
part include one case for each of the 62 years of the collection for
each of the following 54 categories: the 50 states, the District of
Columbia, federal institutional totals, state cumulative totals, and
United States totals (the sum of the federal and state cumulative
totals). The figures were drawn from a voluntary reporting program in
which each state, the District of Columbia, and the Federal Bureau of
Prisons reported summary and detailed statistics, as part of the
National Prisoner Statistics reporting series. Each file also includes
individual state and United States general population figures.
