Fig. 2-5-2-6 shows the percent distribution of probationers/parolees whose probation/parole supervision terminated in 2009 by reason for termination. 95.3% of parolees and 70.4% of probationers had their probation/parole supervision terminated upon completion of their term. In contrast, 4.3% (656 persons) of parolees had their parole supervision revoked and 26.6% (1,217 persons) of probationers had their suspension of execution of the sentence revoked.
Examining the percentage of probationers/parolees whose probation/parole supervision terminated with revocation among all of those whose probation/parole supervision terminated by employment status at the time of termination revealed that the percentage of unemployed persons who had their probation/parole supervision revoked was 10.2% (1.6% for employed persons) with parolees and 48.9% (13.1% (id.)) with probationers, indicating a remarkably high percentage when compared to those employed (Source: Annual Report of Statistics on Rehabilitation).
Fig. 2-5-2-7 shows the percent distribution of probationers/parolees by employment status at the commencement/ termination of their probation/parole supervision in 2009. Although it is rather difficult to make an exact comparison as those whose probation/parole supervision started and those whose probation/parole supervision terminated during a respective year were not necessarily the same person, the proportion of employed persons was generally higher at the termination of their probation/parole supervision than at the commencement. However, 30.3% of parolees and 35.8% of probationers had their probation/parole supervision terminated while unemployed.
