Frequency of Data Collection. Annual
Data Quality. Data is based on continuous enrollment. Therefore, the current enrollment is being
compared to the outcome of graduates, including individuals served in the prior year and those still
enrolled at year end. This distorts the numbers when the program is either growing or contracting.
Programs differ in objectives and degrees/certificates offered, so very different outcomes are being
combined. Reporting is inconsistent from state to state. Some data being combined may not be reliable.
Explanation. In FY 2005, for the 43 states submitting aggregate data, 20,080 inmates participated in the
program. Of these, 4,633 complete a degree or certificate. The FY 2005 data is more accurate than prior
data so targets for FY 2006 and FY 2008 were revised.
