"it's considered to be above the 10% average...


Explanation:
...although -as it also happens outside the penitentiary environment- there are notable geographical differences". I think the problem is that 'reaaaallyawfullest' of all words: "extrapenitenciariamente", it's almost of German dimensions and I'm not even too sure it does exist at all. Anyway, there goes my version of it, but then I'm a simple creature....cheers :)

all nicely rearranged!


Explanation:
....IS CALCULATED TO BE ABOVE 10% ON AVERAGE,BUT /SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES OCCUR GEOGRAPHICALLY/THERE ARE SIGNIDICANT GEOGRAPHICAL DIFFERENCES/ BOTH IN AND OUTSIDE THE PRISONS. IN SPAIN....
(se considera superior al 10% de media, si bien existen notables diferencias geográficas, igual que ocurre extrapenitenciariamente )

I HAVE CHANGED THE ORDER (1) TO MAKE IT MORE MANAGEABLE eNGLISH and (2) TO PUT THE IMPORTANT FACT FIRST - THAT THERE ARE GEOGRAPHICAL DIFFERENCES (it kinda follows on that these geographical differences will be reflected both inside and outside the prisons)
