Nationality & Incarceration.

Prison numbers by nationality as of December 21st. Interesting numbers I reckon, the most striking aspect is that Jamaican prisoners number around 50% more than any other nationality (except British of course). There are all sorts of lesser points of interest too, such as the surprisingly large number of Vietnamese prisoners who outnumber Indian or Chinese inmates. The huge sex difference in male and female inmates from Pakistan, 447 men and only 12 women from that country are in UK prisons, in comparison female Thais are equal in number to their male counterparts.
