This third edition of the World Pre-trial/Remand Imprisonment List shows the number of pre-trial/remand prisoners held in penal institutions in 216 prison systems in independent countries and dependent territories. The List also shows the percentage of pre-trial/remand prisoners within each national prison population and the number of pre-trial/remand prisoners per 100,000 of the national population (the pre-trial/remand prison population rate). The information is the latest available at the end of November 2016. In addition the last two tables provide data, by continent, on pre-trial/remand prisoner totals and rates, and trends since about 2000. This List, together with the World Prison Population List (11th edition published in February 2016) and the World Female Imprisonment List (3rd edition published in September 2015) complement the information held on the World Prison Brief online database at www.prisonstudies.org. The World Prison Brief is updated monthly. The World Pre-trial/Remand Imprisonment List is compiled, like the World Prison Population List, from a variety of sources. In almost all cases the original source is the national prison administration of the country concerned, or else the Ministry responsible for the prison administration. Most of the figures are recent and efforts are continually made to update them and to obtain information on the number of pre-trial/remand prisoners in the 10 countries on which no figures have been traced (Bhutan, China, Cuba, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Guinea Bissau, Maldives, North Korea, Northern Mariana Islands, Somalia). Although the figures in this List are more up to date than has been achieved in previous editions, there are a number of countries for which it has so far proved impossible to obtain recent data.
