Question about English (US)

If you take away the phrase "per capita" from the sentence below, how does the meaning of the sentence differ? What does the "per capita" work in the sentence? Thanks in advance.

 To McAvoy’s way of thinking, America is  a world leader in three things only: military spending, the number of adults per capita serving  prison sentences, and the number of adults, presumably conservative Christians, who believe  “angels are real.”  Angels are real?
