How many inmates are there in Arizona?


It is important to know that the number of inmates increased in every year from 1981 through 2010, by more than 900 per year.  This is definitely something.  For example, in 2012 there were 40300 inmates in Arizona.  This signifies that there were approximately 8 inmates per 1000 residents.  In 2011 there were 40500 inmates in Arizona and in 2010 there were 40927 inmates in Arizona.  Keep in mind that the large increase was primarily due to the state’s mandatory sentencing laws.
