What communities do people who are incarcerated come from? It's a simple question, with huge implications, that until recently was impossible to answer. However, the data is finally available to answer it. In this series of reports, we examine the data and make it available to the public to better understand how mass incarceration harms communities and what can be done about it.
Learn about the national prison crisis and how we can begin to turn the tide on mass incarceration. Then, drill down to your state. Be sure to also check out our pages focused on D.C., and the incarceration of Native people.
