Bureau of Prison’s Historical Analytics

Posted: May 15, 2014 in Bureau of Prisons

So I found some Bureau of Prison public APIs last week and decided to build a system that generates charts to show historical trends on facility population as well as more general stats for BoP.

For example, here you can see that in the last month, the Bureau of Prisons have 8,195 more inmates and 299 less staff. Seems like a winning combo… lol

Or when looking at an individual facility’s page, you can see (for example) how San Diego MCC has had inmate population grow by 5% in the last 2 weeks.

This is what happens when you give nerds access to data.
