Florida County Detention Facilities' Average Inmate PopulationInmate Profile Summary
This County Detention Facilities Summary provides an annual profile of Florida's detention facility inmate populations. Monthly Average Daily Population (ADP) figures include male, female, adult and juvenile inmates.
Table 1 illustrates county jail populations over a eight year period (1990 - 1996). The 1996 population figures are arranged into felony, misdemeanor and "other" subcategories in Table 1A. "Other" includes the number of parole violators, state inmates, undocumented aliens, holdings for other jurisdictions and individuals detained under the Baker (mental health) and Myers (alcoholism) Acts. Within both felony and misdemeanor subcategories, the number of inmates sentenced, held for trial or sentencing, and those detained or sentenced for violation of probation are listed. Table 2 features the average 1996 populations at county jails and average incarceration rates by county. Table 3 lists average 1996 populations by facility. Table 4 sshows the average 1996 felony pretrial population by facility and month. Table 5 shows the average 1996 misdemeanor pretrial population by facility and month.
The charts that follow illustrate seven year trends in county jail facilities
The average inmate population presented in Table 1 (42,461) is different than that presented in Tables 2, 3, 4 and 5 (43,268). This difference (807) is caused by rounding error. In this instance, this problem is compounded by the computational difficulty encountered in calculating the average of an average. The differences in totals are not errors and the calculations presented in this report should be considered accurate.
Due to varying circumstances, several facilities did not report at various times during the year and therefore, are not included in statewide total. These need to be taken into consideration when referring to the numbers presented in this report. The following is a list of facilities, by month, that did not report during 1996. The number in parenthesis next to the month indicates the number of facilities that did not report in that month.

DC Rated Capacity Information
In reports prior to July, 1996, information was listed regarding the Department of Correction's (DC's) rated capacity of each county detention facility. However, as of July 1, 1996 the Department of Corrections was no longer legislatively required to establish and monitor this information. As such, this information will not be published in this report because the information exists only for the first six months of 1996.
Questions about the mailing list or requests for additional forms should be addressed to the DC's Office of the Inspector General at (850) 488-2102.
