Male prisoners consistently had higher proportions than females with prior imprisonment, ranging from 68% in the Northern Territory to 50% in Victoria. The highest proportion of female prisoners with a prior imprisonment was 57% in the Australian Capital Territory, and the lowest was recorded in Tasmania at 28%. (Table 3.8)
