That is a very good point, statistically speaking.

I do statistics by dictate in the field i'm swimming in.


HBO put out yet another amazing documentary, called Bastards of the Party, about the history of street gangs in LA. It's really really really interesting if you get a chance to see it.

Anyway...one topic was the warehousing of young black men that California is engaged in...in the last 15 years quite a large percentage have been incarcerated due to the made-up "war" on "drugs".

It got me to wonder, when we talk about the unemployment rate falling - are incarcerated people counted as employed, unemployed, or...?
