1 in 31, The Long Reach of Corrections

The number of people on
probation or parole has skyrocketed to more than
5 million, up from 1.6 million just 25 years ago.
This means that 1 in 45 adults in the United
States is now under criminal justice supervision in
the community, and that combined with those in
prison and jail, a stunning 1 in every 31 adults, or
3.2 percent, is under some form of correctional
control.
