Nearly 1 in 2 adults in the United States has seen an immediate family member go to jail or prison for at least one night, according to a new study from Cornell University. One in 7 adults has had an immediate family member behind bars for at least a year; for 1 in 34 adults that relative has been behind bars a decade or longer. The study estimates that 6.5 million adults, 1 in 38, currently have an immediate family member incarcerated.
