QUESTION: where to find prison populations in 1970, 1971, 1972, or 1973

question / pregunta: 

Where would I find statistics for the state and federal prison populations (both total and broken down by gender)for 1970, 1971, 1972 or 1973? I checked the Bureau of Justice Statistics site, but its reports only go back to 1977.

QUESTION: Prison Population statistics and health care costs

question / pregunta: 

I'm doing a research project in which I try to estimate the cost of health care for prisoners as a function of age. The best way (that I can think of) to do this is to find the prison health care spending of each state, and also the prison population characteristics.
The question is, does anyone know where I can find prison population statistics that include age? I need this for each state, and/or the federal prison system. If someone knows how to use census data files, that might help - their summary statistics don't have enough information to be useful.
Thanks for your time.

Answer: Steel import/exports


Hello, the census bureau's Foreign Trade Statistics website gives info on steel imports.

You can get summary statistics for all foreign imports and exports here as a part of the Statistical Abstract of the United States. For more detailed data, you can use the database STAT USA that is available through the Pima County Public Library. I checked the catalog and apparently there is a terminal in the main library near the 3rd floor reference desk which provides log-in access. A reference librarian there could help you pull out the specific information on the steel industry and also help you pull out data for the whole Latin American region.
