2006 Jail Population Recap
In 2006, the statewide county detention incarceration rate was 3.4 per 1,000 county residents based on the population estimates for 2006 (Table 2). This based on county population estimates provided by the Florida Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research. Average in¬car¬cera¬tion rates ranged from a low of 1.6 in Union County, to a high of 11.1 in Wakulla County. Other counties may also be experiencing high incarceration rates due to the contracting of bed space for state and federal inmates.
