P12 Incarceration, Labor Markets, and Firm Performance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The prison population in the United States has grown from a rate of 683 per 100,000 in 2000 to 731 per 100,000 in 2010. Incarceration can take a portion of the working population out of the workforce permanently due to bans on felons working in over 50 industries. Schmitt and Warner (2010) estimate that in 2008 these employment losses resulted in a cost to the U.S. of approximately $57 to $65 billion. We conduct analyses on the impact of incarceration on firms based in the U.S. We hypothesize that increases in incarceration rates have a negative impact on firm performance.
