Capitol Hill Briefing on Measuring the Impacts of Incarceration

October 3, 2019 1345

On October 10th, the Population Association of America and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management will host a Capitol Hill briefing: “Cost and Effect: Measuring the Impacts of Incarceration on Individuals, Neighborhoods, and Society.”

The briefing starts at noon in 2044 Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. Nancy LaVigne of the Urban Institute will moderate and Jeffrey Morenoff of the University of Minnesota and Samuel Norris of the University of Chicago will speak. Lunch will be provided.

To RSVP, please email CRDfellow2@dc-crd.com.

There are nearly 2.2 million incarcerated Americans, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. If this population were to form a city, it would be the fifth largest in the country—just behind Houston. The fiscal cost of maintaining this incarceration rate is carried by the taxpayer, while the human cost is borne by families, neighborhoods and those serving time. With so much at stake, how do we measure both the cost and effectiveness of criminal justice policies? Please join us for an examination of the fiscal and human implications of high incarceration rates— drawn from analysis of state and federal statistics as well as the lived experiences of the recently incarcerated.
