The Associated Press asked all 50 states for a current total of escapees from secure, locked state prisons where they were held full-time, not including those who walked off from work release or other unfenced settings.

States keep varying data on such escapes. Some states supplied data for all time, while others included only recent years. In states whose data reaches back to the first half of the 20th century, officials say some of the escapees are almost certainly dead.

The number of escaped prisoners still at large by state:
