Far more men are incarcerated than are women. Since most incarcerated men have families, when a man is incarcerated, there can be repercussions not only for himself, but also for his children and his spouse or partner. However, not all families are affected by incarceration in the same way. The implications of incarceration vary by the incarcerated individual's gender, race/ethnicity, age, and the geographical region in which he lives. This fact sheet discusses the implications of incarceration on fathers and their families. (Author abstract)
