This collection is part of the larger BJS portfolio of establishment surveys that inform the nation on the characteristics of adult correctional facilities and persons sentenced to state, federal, and privately operated prisons. BJS's National Prisoner Statistics Program (NPS) collects aggregate counts of male and female custody and jurisdiction prison populations on December 31 each year. Through the National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP), BJS collects individual level data on prisoners entering or leaving the custody of state prison systems. While NPS and NCRP describe prisoners and their characteristics, the Census of State and Federal Adult Correctional Facilities (CCF) collects corrections data at the facility level. Data obtained are intended to describe the characteristics of community based and confinement adult correctional facilities and allow BJS to describe the conditions in which this population is being held. The information collected informs BJS on issues such as capacity and crowding; conditions of confinement; security staff to inmate ratios; facility function; safety and security; and inmate reentry. The CCF also serves as the means to identify the universe of facilities from which a sample is drawn for BJS's Survey of Prison Inmates (SPI), an omnibus survey that collects a wide range of data on the personal and criminal histories of prisoners. During the 2 year project the recipient of funds will complete the CCF data collection and deliver high quality data on facility operations, conditions of confinement, and inmate characteristics
