CDCR Weekly Inmate Population

TIP: Mouse over each node to see the exact population for the date shown

* Three-Judge Court order covers population levels in the 34 adult institutions in California.
** Overall population includes inmates in fire camps and private facilities (in-state and out-of-state), as well as inmates in the 34 institutions covered by the Three-Judge Court order.
*** The target is based on the current “design capacity” of CDCR’s prison system. That number will increase with the scheduled activation of in-fill projects at two prisons. The resulting increase in design capacity will raise the Three-Judge Court’s benchmark population cap proportionally.

Note: Target population estimates are based on current design capacity

*Percent of design capacity – Design capacity is the number of inmates an institution can house based on one inmate per cell and single-level bunks in dormitories. The current design capacity of CDCR's 34 adult facilities is 82,707, which will increase with the scheduled activation of several construction projects. The resulting increase in design capacity will raise the Three-Judge Court's benchmark population caps proportionally.
