Prior commitment refers to any previous occasion that an inmate served time in the Florida prison system. This does not include supervision, such as probation. Nor does it include inmates who may have been in county jails in Florida, in other state systems, or in the Federal prison system.

The percentage of inmates in prison on June 30, 2016, who had previously been in Florida prisons increased from 46.8% in 2015 to 47.4% in 2016.

Of all inmates, 21.6% had been in prison in Florida once before, 11.2% had been in twice before, and 14.6% had been in three or more times before.
