I couldn't find anything.....


Explanation:
I still think it may be a typo and that it's a census of institutionalized prisoners. Hang on though - someone may come along with something else. Good luck!

Ponal is not penal


Explanation:
To me, by the context it sounds more like a political division unit like a county or village in South America, in particular, in Colombia.
But thanks for your help,anyways!

prison population


Explanation:
I suspect, as everyone else, that it's 'penal' not 'ponal'.

The above is the standard translation for this term.
