Map: 16 states have more people in prisons and jails than college housing

But that doesn't mean more people are in prison or jail than college.

Via diane gusa

diane gusa's curator insight, Today, 7:39 AM

But the map doesn't show that there are fewer people in college than jail and prison. The entire US corrections population, which includes people in jail, prison, parole, and probation, totaled 6.9 million in 2013. In comparison, about19.5 million people were enrolled for college that same year — but most students live off-campus.

So while criminal justice experts generally agree it's long past time to reduce the number of Americans in jails and prisons, the map isn't a perfect comparison.
