The New York Times had an article yesterday that explained that the United States has a disproportionate proportion of the world’s prison population. Further, African American men are a disproportionate percentage of the prison population in the United States.

This is the proportion age 18-64 in correctional facilities. It would be better to have this for age 18-24, or the proportion age 30 that have ever spent time in a correctional facility, but that's not what the census is giving me.

Come back Monday for a report on trends in earnings.
