White paper on crime 2012 Part2/Chapter5/Section1/3
Fig. 2-5-1-2 shows the percent distribution of inmates sentenced to imprisonment for a determinate term and granted parole in 1982, 1992, 2002, and 2007-2011 by the rate of served term of imprisonment (percentage of served term of imprisonment until release to the term of the sentence). It also shows the percent distribution of those granted parole in 2011 by the rate of served term of imprisonment, both with and without previous convictions during the last 5 years, and by term of the sentence. In recent years the proportion of those granted parole at an early stage when the rate of the served term of imprisonment was still low was on a declining trend. In addition, by term of the sentence, this proportion was lower with those whose term of the sentence was longer among those sentenced to imprisonment for more than one year and with those with a previous conviction than without one.
