Despite bipartisan efforts to reform the criminal justice system and reduce the length of sentences, the number of people in American prisons has seen only a slight decline in recent years, according to data from the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics.

根据联邦司法统计局的数据,尽管两党都在努力改革刑事司法系统并缩短刑期,但近年来美国监狱的人数仅略有下降。

The imprisonment rate for all state and federal prisoners decreased 2.1 percent year-on-year in 2017, the most recent year for which data is available.

2017年,所有州和联邦囚犯的监禁率同比下降了2.1%,这是最近一年可获得的数据显示。

In 2017 there were 440 sentenced prisoners per 100,000 Americans, down from 450 in 2016.

2017年,每10万名美国人中有440人被判刑,低于2016年的450人。

Despite the overall decline, the U.S. remains the nation with the largest known incarcerated population in the world (it's unclear how many prisoners are in China).

尽管总体上有所下降,但美国仍然是世界上已知监禁人口最多的国家(目前还不清楚中国有多少囚犯)。
