UTAH DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS DASHBOARD

DASHBOARD FAQ

The UDC Dashboard is an interactive tool created with the objective of enhancing public transparency through providing up-to-date statistics and the stories behind those statistics. Here you can find data about current staffing levels, state-wide incarceration rates, recidivism rates, and program/education participation.

Each statistic rendered below is tracked at different intervals and through different methods. The intervals used are listed below each of the datasets. In the interest of transparency, footnotes are provided when necessary.

The Utah Department of Corrections receives many questions every single day regarding our operations. This dashboard was developed with the intent of making commonly sought-after information instantly available to the public, while also providing additional context to that information.

Our goal for this dashboard is to be as informative and transparent as possible, without compromising inmate privacy or operational security. When developing the dashboard, our team worked to find the most accurate and relevant statistics available.
