Note: MN Inmates Under Contract includes Minnesota inmates housed in other states. Other includes inmates in facilities not specifically listed above, including county jails. LLSP provides some assistance or referrals to any individual incarcerated in Minnesota as time and policy permit. In 2000 requests were processed from twenty-six county jails. Non-Minnesota prisoners housed in other states are routinely referred to law libraries near their place of incarceration. At the beginning of year 2000, Red Wing became a juvenile facility for males. LLSP received one request in 2000, the same as the previous year, from Red Wing.

|MN Inmates Under Contract||26||26||28||+7.7|
Note: "Individuals Assisted" is the total number of persons to whom LLSP provided information in each facility. Due to the movement of inmates between facilities, an individual may have been counted more than once in the facility statistics. If an inmate is transferred from one facility to another and requests information through LLSP from both institutions, then that same inmate will be counted twiceonce for each facility. However, in the "Total Assisted" row, transferees are counted once. For this reason, the numbers in the facility statistics section of the above table may not add up to the totals indicated in the "Total Assisted" row.
