Information on the nightly housing of each CDCR resident from January 1, 2016 to the present.
This dataset comprises data related to the housing of CDCR residents, with one record per resident per night from 1 Jan 2016 to the present. Nghts after a resident has paroled or discharged are not included, but nights when residents are temporarily out to court or a medical facility (as noted in [ResidentData/LocationStatus] are included even though the resident is not present that night. If a paroled or discharged resident returns to CDCR, then their records will resume on the night they first returned. To reduce dataset size, a number of columns use lookup values rather than text labels.
