I need your help.

I co-founded the Prison Policy Initiative to put the problem of mass incarceration — and the perverse incentives that fuel it — on the national agenda. Over the last 15 years, our campaigns have protected our democracy from the prison system and the poorest families in this country from the predatory prison telephone industry. Our reports untangle the statistics and recruit new allies.

But now, more than ever, we need your help to put data & compassion into the conversation. A group of donors will match the first $80,000 we can raise. Will you help us meet this goal?

Thank you.

Correctional Control: Incarceration and supervision by state

correctional control report thumbnail Prison is just one piece of the correctional pie. For the first time, this report aggregates data on all forms of correctional control in one nationwide chart and 100 state-specific pie charts. We find tremendous variation between states, largely due to differences in the use of the leading form of correctional control: probation.

Learn about the national prison crisis and how we can begin to turn the tide on mass incarceration. Then, drill down to your state.
