States Sending the Most People to Prison - 24/7 Wall St.

States Sending the Most People to Prison - 24/7 Wall St.
http://247wallst.com/special-report/2013/07/25/states-sending-the-most-people-to-prison

To identify the states sending the most people to prison, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the states that had the most inmates in each state’s prison jurisdiction per 100,000 residents. The data come from Bureau of Justice Statistics’ “Prisoners in 2012” report. To be in a state’s jurisdiction, a prisoner needed to be sentenced within the state, not necessarily incarcerated there. We also reviewed educational attainment, income and poverty statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau for 2011. We also considered state crime rates from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, also for 2011. All data was for the most recent available period.

L’origine “ethnique” est soigneusement évitée.
