A Study of 2016 Iowa Prison Commitments by County Courts

Abstract

The process that can result in a convict being committed to prison to serve a sentence is adaptive, adversarial and complex. One way to study a complex process is to study the smaller component parts. In Iowa the smallest components where data is available for study are the 99 counties. This study uses data collected by the Iowa Department of Corrections on county commitments to prison in 2016.
