    The Road to Prison: Incarceration Disparity and its Underlying Factors by Martin, Christopher Robert

    When comparing the incarceration rate in the United States to that of other countries, there is a substantial difference. In addition to leading the world in incarcerated population, there is a disparity in the incarceration rates of the United States with respect to race as well. Using data gathered from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, I analyzed the probability of sentencing to a correctional facility based on the independent variables of race (black, Hispanic, nonblack/non-Hispanic), highest grade completed, number of times suspended, income, and number of parents in the household. It was found that race plays a role in probability of sentencing to a correctional facility, in addition to income, educational attainment, and presence of the mother in the household.
