According to the United Nations’ office on Drugs and Crime, imprisonment disproportionately affects individuals and families living in poverty. When an income generating member of the family is imprisoned the rest of the family must adjust to this loss of income, exacerbated by the new expenses that must be met – such as the cost of a lawyer and transport to prison for visits and so on. When released, often with no prospects for employment, former prisoners are generally subject to socio-economic exclusion and are thus vulnerable to an endless cycle of poverty, marginalization, criminality and imprisonment. Thus, imprisonment contributes directly to the impoverishment of the prisoner, of his family (with a significant cross-generational effect) and of society by creating future victims and reducing future potential economic performance.
According to the Federal Register, a notice by the Prison Bureau of Washington, DC dated 07/19/2018, the fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates in Fiscal Year 2018 was $37,449.00 ($102.60 per day)
