Inmate Population

Inmates with Mandatory Sentences

The figures on this page should not be compared with numbers published for prior years. The Bureau of Research and Data Analysis has changed the way habitual and mandatory inmates are identified to report this population more completely. In the past, only the current active prison sentence was examined to determine if the sentence involved a mandatory or habitual provision. This has been changed to examine all prison sentences that make up the total term of incarceration. An inmate is now reported as a mandatory or habitual offender if any sentence involves a mandatory term or habitual offender designation.
