Incarceration and Racial Inequality in Men's Employment.
Western, Bruce; Pettit, Becky
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v54 n1 p3-16 Oct 2000
Combining prison survey and Current Population Survey data significantly reduces estimated employment rates for African Americans, young workers, and high school dropouts. Employment among young black male high school dropouts declined between 1982-1996. Labor force data that do not include incarceration statistics significantly understate inequality in employment among yong dropouts by 45%. (SK)
