How many "missing" inmates?

When they do the final count, they say they are short 10 inmates - and there are the 10 inmates in the pool.    Pennsatucky is with the CO - but she wouldn't be missed because Linda was being counted. 

But what about the fact that Chang also escaped? Shouldn't they be short 11 inmates?  Is this a plot flaw, or am I missing something?

Yeah, I agree; it seems to be a mistake on the part of the writers. Annoying! I also picked up on it straight away and it distracted me for a few minutes!

It wasn't the writers mistake. Just part of the storyline - correction workers counting error. Something that occurs everyday and especially after a riot situation. The missing two inmates will be discovered once Linda reveals herself and another count is done.
