The fact that the United States incarcerates more of it’s citizens than any other NATO nation is no secret. This study from Attorney Andrew Flusche looks at the incarceration rates of all 50 States.

The study draws several striking conclusions:

  • Louisiana is the state in the Union with the highest incarceration rate of nearly 1.0% of the population (or 1,000 of every 100,000 citizens!)
  • Overall, the US incarcerates about 0.70% of its citizens. The next closest among founding NATO members is the United Kingdom, at just 0.15%
  • Of the 1,358,875 total state prisoners in 2013, just 7.15% were female

The rankings, and other incarceration statistics, are displayed with the interactive map below.
