Focusing on trends over the past several decades, The Sentencing Project has released a set of fifteen charts, Trends in U.S. Corrections, that provide a compilation of key developments in the criminal justice system. Among the issues featured in this collection are:
  • Rate of incarceration from 1925 to 2010
  • International comparisons of incarceration rates
  • Changes in the drug offender composition of prison populations over time
  • Racial/ethnic disparities by gender in incarceration
  • Increases in the number of people serving life sentences and life without parole since the 1980s
  • Trends in the number of juveniles held in adult prisons and jails since 1985
  • Increases in state corrections expenditures from 1985 to 2010
