Graph showing the state prison incarceration rate for the United States from 1925 to 2012 and the incarceration rates for 5 select states from 1978-2012. The graph shows that the diversity between the states is almost as dramatic -- and sometimes contrary to -- the larger national trend.

Data Source: For detailed sourcing, see http://www.prisonpolicy.org/reports/overtime.html#select50. (Graph: Peter Wagner, 2014)

This graph originally appeared in Tracking State Prison Growth in 50 States.
