Market research on US Private Prisons

Cancelled

Job Description

Generate 2 excel data sets:

First data set:
- Number of prisoners in private prison over time, 1990 - current, annual data, for all of the US, breakdown by state and federal prisons
- Number of prisoners in public prisons over time, 1990 - current, annual data, for all of the US, breakdown by state and federal prisons

Second data set (lower priority):
- Number of private prison firms, by market share, over time, 1990-current, annual data for all of the US, breakdown by state and federal prisons


For both datasets:
- Any forecasted growth for beyond 2013 would also be helpful
- Earlier data would also be helpful
- Sources must be documented and consistent (pasting links, etc is fine)

The hard work with each is finding the source for each graph, once there is a source the numbers should be easy to put together. Bureau of Justice Statistics may be a good place to search for numbers to fill in the first dataset.

I will use the datasets to generate a graph.
