Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2016

pie chart report 2016 thumbnail With 2.3 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 our new report and comprehensive graphic, Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2016, we provide the answer to how many people are locked up in the U.S., where, and why. We are optimistic that this “whole pie” approach gives the public and policymakers the foundation to now consider the types of changes that would end the country’s reign as the number one incarcerator in the world.
