The Incarceration history cluster defines a prison entrant's incarceration history.
Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
The Incarceration history cluster combines the two data elements: Prison entrant—type of corrective services facility, code N and Prison entrant—number of times in prison or juvenile detention, total number N[N] to define the number of times a prison entrant has been detained in a juvenile detention centre and /or adult prison.
As this data cluster aims to collect the prison entrant's previous history of incarceration, both data elements may be applicable to the one prisoner. That is, a prisoner may have previously been detained in both a juvenile detention centre (as a juvenile offender) and then in a prison (as an adult offender).
Information on a person's incarceration history is collected during the reception assessment on the National Prisoner Health Data Collection Prison Entrants form.
