Male lifetime likelihood of going to state or federal prison, by race and ethnicity, 1974–2001
|Black male||White male||Hispanic male||All male|
Notes: The black and white categories exclude persons of Hispanic origin. Percents represent the chances of being admitted to state or federal prison during a lifetime. Estimates were obtained by applying age-specific first incarceration and mortality rates for each group to a hypothetical population of 100,000 births. See methodology section in Bonczar (2003).
