2012 Invitational Forum Resources

The NCFMR has developed an extensive set of data resources to facilitate research on families and well-being. Our incarceration resources provide original analyses of national data sets summarizing a share of the U.S. population's experiences with incarceration. These analyses offer a richer, more nuanced portrait of the sociodemographic characteristics of the growing share of the overall population that has spent time in jail or prison. Additionally, we published a report on incarceration from the 2012 Measuring Incarceration in Household Surveys invitation forum.
