An approximate ratio of 639 of 100,000 US residents are currently spending time behind bars according to data provided by Institute for Crime & Justice Policy Research at the University of London. With El Salvador and Panama, two other countries of the American continent make the top ten at places two and nine respectively.

The UK’s overseas territories are also represented with two entries, the Virgin Islands and Grenada.

The latter rounds off the list of the ten countries with the highest prison population rates with a value of 413 inmates per 100,000 residents.
