Policy analysis

California Sentencing Institute

In 2009, CJCJ developed the California Sentencing Institute as the foundation for data and research driven commentary on the broader public policy dialogue. The interactive map presents detailed crime and incarceration numbers, rates, and trends for California and each of its 58 counties. This resource is designed to provide comprehensive analysis of sentencing policies and practices across the state.

Known Data Limitations and Adjustments

Last Updated March 30, 2018.

Each year, every county submits their data to the official statewide databases maintained by appointed governmental bodies. While every effort is made to review data for accuracy and to correct information upon revision, CJCJ cannot be responsible for data reporting errors made at the county, state, or national level. View definitions page for more information on the formula to calculate state confinement costs.

PLEASE NOTE: Possible limitations with San Francisco adult arrest figures may distort San Francisco trends as they appear on the interactive map and downloadable spreadsheets. CJCJ is seeking further confirmation from SFPD on the reliability of San Francisco arrest data.
