Canada. Aboriginal Adults account for 22% of Admissions to Sentenced Custody

Aboriginal adults accounted for 22% of admissions to sentenced custody in 2007/2008, while representing 3% of the Canadian population.

Age, level of education, and employment status can only partially explain the representation of Aboriginal adults incarcerated in Canadian prisons, according to a new study that used data from the Integrated Correctional Service Survey and the 2006 Census to analyze factors that could be contributing to the representation of Aboriginal adults in custody.
