ABSTRACT
The article highlights the results of the survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Statistics concerning the federal and state corrections. It found an increase number in prison population less than 1% prisoners from 2007 to 2008, however, 20 states reported a decline in the number of prisoners under their jurisdiction in 2008. It suggests that slower growth in the state prison population was associated with fewer new court commitments during 2007 and 2008.
