That’s a given.
More population = more people = more people in prison.
What you should look at is the percentage of people in jail and compare it with other countries.
Well then China would have the world’s largest prision population. But it doesn’t.
The US has 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s incarcerated population. This should be common knowledge by now.
70% of the US prison population is People of Color, that’s as much as all of China’s prisons.
The United States not only has the worlds largest prison population, but we have the worlds largest per capita prison population at well over 700 of ever 100,000 people incarcerated.
China has 1 billion more people than the US, yet still imprisons about 1 million fewer people than the US.
