Abstract

Incarceration data from various sources was collected and presented in graphical form. Three figures (Figures 2a and b, and Figure 6) from the PEW Center were reprinted with permission. Data was collected from the International Centre for Prison Studies, the PEW Center, the CIA World Factbook, the US Census Bureau, and other sources as indicated. The figures show incarceration rates for selected countries and spending decisions in the United States for education and corrections; world regional incarceration rates; incarceration rates, literacy rates and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for selected countries; prison populations for selected US states and countries of similar size; and the number of incarcerated people in the United States by race, age, and gender.
