Sources and methodology

NTA
Neighborhood Tabulation Areas (NTAs) are small, geographic units to analyze populations at a small area level. These units have a minimum population of 15,000 and therefore are made up of combinations of neighbrhoods and do not seek to represent exact neighborhood boundaires.
Number of people in state prison from each NTA, 2020
This is the number of people from each NTA in state prison as of 2020. See the methodology section of the report.
Census population, 2020
This is the population of the NTA as reported in the 2020 Census.
Total population, 2020
This is the total population of the NTA as reflected in the 2020 Census plus the imprisoned population.
Imprisonment rate per 100,000
This is the number of imprisoned people divided by the total population and then multiplied by 100,000. It allows ready comparison of the frequency of imprisonment between each NTA of different population sizes.
