DEFINITION: Total number of all deaths for prisoners in state correctional facilities. NOTE: this statistic does not include District of Columbia. There were 9 prisoner deaths in 2001 for Washingotn DC. None of the deaths were suicide or homicide.
I am looking at the murder and manslaughter rates for California. It's very precise, down to 3 decimal points(.662) per 10,000 people. But it does not say for what period these statistics are for. Are they for 2005? Are they for 1997? Are they an average for the years of 1992-2002? Who knows.
