Title:One in 100: Behind Bars in America 2008
Organization:The Pew Center on the States
Short Description:One in 100: Behind Bars in America 2008 details how, for the first time in history, more than one in every 100 adults in America are in jail or prison—a fact that significantly impacts state budgets without delivering a clear return on public safety.
