Abstract: This annual report provides the number of inmates and the overall incarceration rate per 100,000 residents for each State and the Federal system. It offers trends since 2000 and percentage changes in prison populations since midyear and yearend 2005. The midyear report presents the number of prison inmates held in private facilities, the number of prisoners under 18 years of age held by State correctional authorities, and the number of noncitizen prisoners. It includes total numbers for prison and jail inmates by gender, race, and Hispanic origin as well as counts of jail inmates by conviction status and confinement status. The report also provides findings on rated capacity of local jails, percent of capacity occupied, and capacity added. Highlights include the following: (1) on June 30, 2006, an estimated 4.8 percent of Black men were in prison or jail, compared to 1.9 percent of Hispanic men and 0.7 percent of White men; (2) for the 12 months ending June 30, 2006, State systems reported a larger increase than the Federal system in the number of inmates housed in private prisons; (3) between July 1, 2005 and June 30, 2006, the number of persons held in local jails increased 2.5 percent to reach 766,010 inmates, the lowest growth since the 1.6 percent increase in mid-year 2001.
