Vermont profile

The graphs on this page are from our 50 State Incarceration Profiles.


Over time

graph showing the number of people in state prison and local jails per 100,000 residents in Vermont from 1978 to 2015 We inquired about the drop in Vermont's incarceration rate in the mid to late-1990s and learned it was the result of a new intermediate sanctions program and the increased use of furlough. This was a one time improvement after which a new law decreased the use of bail, causing the population to rise again.
You can also see the same graph expressed as numbers rather than as rates per 100,000.
