Self-reported physical health status of incoming federally-sentenced women offenders: PS83-3/332E-PDF

"To provide the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) with information on the prevalence of physical health conditions among newly-admitted federal inmates, a large-scale research project was undertaken to examine the self-reported physical health conditions of all incoming men and women offenders. The study on all federally-sentenced men offenders admitted during a six-month period was completed in 2013. For the current study, health data from 280 women offenders on new warrants of committal were recorded for a 13 month period (from April 2012 to May 2013). Rates of physical health conditions were examined and compared to those of the newly-admitted men offenders collected in the previous research study and to rates in the general Canadian female population (primarily based on the Canadian Community Health Survey) for conditions where these data were available"--Executive summary, p. iii.
