Guide for use:

The Incarceration history cluster provides information on the total number of times a prison entrant has been in custody in a juvenile detention centre or a prison. This is achieved by the combination of the two data elements: Prison entrant—type of corrective services facility, code N, and Prison entrant—number of times in prison or juvenile detention.

The Incarceration history cluster describes data on:

Juvenile detention centre Adult prison
Number of times in custody N[N] N[N]

As this data cluster aims to collect the prison entrant's previous history of incarceration, both items may be applicable to the one prisoner. That is, a prisoner may have previously been detained in both a juvenile detention centre (as a juvenile offender) and then in a prison (as an adult offender).
