Statistical Wonderland #4

Once again, being out of the office yesterday afternoon meant that I missed my ABS email. Here is the 4th installment, half a day late:

4517.0 – Prisoners in Australia, 2009

This link will take you to the ABS media release, which summarises the findings of prisoners in Australia in 2009. You can find teh actual ABS release by clicking on the ‘contents’ link on that page. The number of prisoners is still on the increase; women are increasing at a higher rate than men. And indigenous persons are still massively overrepresented.

      Imagine if as much spending was spent on rehabilitation programs for people readjusting to life out of prison as is spent on prisons themselves…
