Federal prison demographics

Californians may want to be aware of a recent analysis that examined prison population data across the United States. Between 1980 and 2012, the population in federal prisons grew by nearly 800 percent, and a large number of those inmates were incarcerated for drug crimes as part of the national War on Drugs. The Urban Institute examined Bureau of Prisons data from 2012 and determined that of the nearly 200,000 federal prisoners, more than half were incarcerated due to drug offenses. More than a third of federal drug offenders had no prior imprisonment before they were sentenced.
