Looking at the numbers I would say the numbers are high in Atascadero due to CMC , SLO County Jail and Atascadero state hospital employees are spreading it as a high percentage live in Atascadero …Paso numbers high as a large number of both x2 Soledad prisons and Avenal and Colinga prisons large numbers of their employees live in Paso and San Miguel lots of commuters.

Lompoc numbers high as Lompoc prison employees can only afford to live near Lompoc or cities north of Lompoc
