Need Some Help Finding Some Numbers

Somewhere deep in the bowels of the NIH, I'm sure, there are statistics showing the average cost of public mental hospitals in the U.S.--but I am not having any luck finding those numbers.

Similarly, somewhere deep in the bowels of the National Institute of Justice there are statistics showing the average operating cost of prisons and of jails in the United States.  If you know where to find those numbers, please, tell me.

Possibly this Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics page has part of what you seek:
