Description of Graphic - Graph 7: Average Length of Stay in Segregation – Aboriginal, Black and Caucasian Offenders

A line graph comparing the average length of stay in segregation of federally incarcerated Aboriginal offenders in blue, Black offenders in red and Caucasian offenders in green by fiscal year from 2005-2006 to 2014-2015. The length of stay is calculated based on the number of days from the date of admission to segregation and the date of release. Offenders who have not yet been released from segregation are not included in these calculations. The average length of stay in segregation has decreased for these three racial groups. However, Aboriginal offenders consistently have an average length of stay in segregation that is greater than for Black or Caucasian offenders.
