The following tables show the in-use CNA(1) for prisons in England and Wales on the last Friday of each month in 2007.

(1) In-use certified normal accommodation (in-use CNA), or uncrowded capacity, is the sum total of all certified accommodation in an establishment less those places not available for immediate use, for example: damaged cells, cells affected by building works. In-use CNA does not normally include cells in punishment or segregation units or health care cells or rooms in training prisons and YOIs that are not routinely used to accommodate long stay patients.
