County Jail Census

The ACLU of Maine has requested the Muskie School’s Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) assistance in
analyzing jail inmate data. The purpose is to find out the reasons for why people are in jail - awaiting
trial or serving a short sentence. In addition, the ACLU of Maine has asked for analysis of jail inmate
length of stay and those inmates who have detained multiple times.
