Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2023

pie chart report 2023 thumbnail With 1.9 million people locked up in more than 6,000 correctional facilities operated by thousands of agencies, getting the big picture is anything but easy. In this report, we break down how many people are locked up in the U.S., where, and why — highlighting causes of incarceration that get too little attention as well as incarceration "myths" that receive too much.
