Oklahoma has ranked No. 1 for per-capita incarceration of women for years and, according to the latest figures from the Department of Justice, Oklahoma ranks fifth highest in the nation in its overall incarceration rate per capita. With a population of 3.6 million, we have more than 25,000 people behind bars.

Alaska, with a population of around 700,000 people, has 5,059 people in prison. Delaware with 850,000 people has 7,206 prison inmates. Texas, with 23 million people, has 172,116 prison inmates and Louisiana, with 4.2 million people, has 37,012 inmates.

If Oklahoma incarceration rates were at the national average, researchers found, Oklahoma would have 22 percent fewer men and 47 percent few women in prisons and jails.
