Can you clarify when data compression is used?

Is the data compression algorithm applied to the text prior to being
converted to ciphertext, or is the ciphertext compressed, or is it the
combination of the ciphertext and encrypted session key that is compressed?
I can't seem to find any documentation discussing this.
