A new report by Pew Research Center looked into state spending on prisoner health care.

According to the State Prison Health Care Spending Report, 39 states saw per-inmate health care spending rise from fiscal 2007-2011, with a median growth of 10 percent. While state spending on prisoner health care increased from fiscal 2007 to 2011, some began to see a decrease after its peak in 2009.
