The proportion of the population in prison varies quite a bit by state. In 2021 the nationwide incarceration rate was 350 per 100,000 (0.35%). Seventeen states exceeded the national average with Mississippi (575), Louisiana (564), Arkansas (559), and Oklahoma (555) having the highest rates of incarceration. The lowest rates were in Massachusetts (96), Maine (107), and Rhode Island (118).
