According to this document, "In Texas, one in 22 adults are under some form of correctional supervision: in prison, in jail, on probation or on parole. On any given day, Texas’ massive state corrections system houses a daily average of 155,000 inmates in 114 state correctional facilities. Texas’ 246 county lockups house an additional 41,000 prisoners each day. Over half of the people (63%) in the county jails are not serving a sentence and are being detained for other reasons.There are nearly four times as many prisons and jails in Texas (360) as there are university campuses statewide (94)."
