Statistics show that Texas has the largest prison population in the United States of America. There are over 145,000 inmates spread across 109 state correctional facilities and an additional 19,000 in Federal units under the direction of the Bureau of Prisons. This is nearly three times the prison population of the number two state, its neighbor Louisiana. However, Louisiana has the distinction of incarcerating more persons per capita than Texas.

Still, the prison system in Texas has much to boast about — it has more of its citizens incarcerated than all but 11 nations, 10 if the United States is naturally removed from that list. However, at the 2013 incarceration rate of 836 persons per 100000, Texas is the Number 1 Prison Complex in the World. The Seychelles has 799 per 100000 and the United States is 666.

Of course, comparing stats apples to apples, Louisiana at 1082/100,000, Oklahoma at 983, Mississippi at 962, Alabama at 951, and Georgia at 916 all beat out Texas for per capita incarceration. But taking into account the per capita in conjunction with the total population and comparing it to the rest of the world, Texas is the undisputed champ at locking people up. Either that, or Texas is the undisputed champion of crime.

Are such stats a cause for boasting or shame?
