You are an expert on correctional systems and have been invited to participate in a conference on “Incarceration Rates in the U.S.” In an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation address the following:
- An analysis of US incarceration statistics compared against other countries, particularly the percentage of the population undergoing incarceration or some other form of correctional supervision.
- Possible reasons behind high incarceration rates in the U.S.
- Suggested methods of reducing the high incarceration rates.
Be sure you are comparing rates and not just raw numbers. Also be sure you are obtaining data from trusted sources.
