Prison population

Quarterly or annual tables of total prison population going back as far as possible (in one statistics department report there was a figure with data back to 1880). Most recent years are available through the corrections website. A csv file with the date and the total prison census is all that is required.

New Zealand has a high rate of imprisonment relative to (most) other OECD countries. Releasing these data may help improve public debate around this issue.
