Abstract

The United States incarcerates its citizens at rates higher than those of any other developed nation in the world, straining both its budgets and communities. The long-run effects of incarceration have been receiving more attention in the past two decades, but little research addresses incarceration’s effects on earnings trajectory. Using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth for 1997, I implement propensity score matching to model the treatment effects of incarceration on wage growth rates, controlling for individual characteristics that influence labor market outcomes.
