Are Indigenous Australians the most incarcerated people on Earth?

Are Indigenous Australians the most incarcerated people on Earth?
- It depends a bit on what you mean by “people”, which is a tricky term to define and will mean different things to different audiences.
For the purposes of this FactCheck, I have confined myself to checking Pearson’s statement on Indigenous Australian incarceration rates with the best available data on national incarceration rates in other countries.
I have also checked Indigenous Australian incarceration rates against the rate at which Indigenous populations are imprisoned in other countries, as well as the rate for African-Americans.
