CHANGES IN THE PRISONER POPULATION

Between 2010 and 2011, the prisoner population increased in all states and territories, except New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. The highest proportional increases in prisoner numbers were for the Northern Territory (16%), the Australian Capital Territory (8%), Victoria and Tasmania (both 4%). The decrease (2%) in the national prisoner population was driven by the decline in the New South Wales prisoner population, which decreased by 8%, followed by Queensland (1%). (Table 3.5)
