Studies on prisoners


Prisoners refer to:

Prison inmates and people incarcerated in custodial or prison settings including youth detention centres, excluding formerly incarcerated populations and people in other non-custodial closed/fixed institutions (such as secure psychiatric hospitals). Psychiatric prison hospital inmates (i.e. people with severe mental illness that are serving custodial sentences) are included.
