Abstract

The Survey of Inmates of State Correctional Facilities, 1974, was designed to gather information on inmate social and economic characteristics, criminal and correctional background, adjudication experience, and prison routine. Within these broad areas, detailed information was obtained on preincarceration employment and income, frequency of drug use, offense, length of sentence, and parole patterns of repeat offenders. There are 432 variables for each of the 9,040 inmates interviewed. The data come in two formats: a card-image file and an OSIRIS data set.
