Adults on Parole, Probation, Or Community Supervision

Summary: Number of persons on parole, probation, and community supervision and number per 1,000 population

This database contains the number of persons on parole, probation, and community supervision (i.e., the sum of parole and probation) and the rate per adult, defined as age 18 or above.  Figures reflect population counts on December 31st of each year.  In some cases, reporting states update this end of year count with a count on January 1st of the following year, and those updates are reflected here.  


NOTE: Rate categories, e.g., Probationers per 1,000 reflect the number of probationers per total population, not adult population.  This category name is being updated.

The survey was not conducted in 1991, and January 1, 1992 population counts were used as estimates of the December 31, 1991 population counts. For additional information on the methodology used, see the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
