Home Science Health Almost 1 of 3 young Americans are arrested

The American researchers found that by the age of 18 years, the arrest rate of Americans was between 15.9% and 26.8%.

By the age of 23 years, the rate was between 25.3% and 41.4%.

They stated, 'If we assume that the missing cases are at least as likely to have been arrested as the observed cases, the in-sample age-23 prevalence rate must lie between 30.2% and 41.4%'

The authors concluded, 'Since the last nationally defensible estimate based on data from 1965, the cumulative prevalence of arrest for American youth (particularly in the period of late adolescence and early adulthood) has increased substantially.'

They stated, 'At a minimum, being arrested for criminal activity signifies increased risk of unhealthy lifestyle, violence involvement, and violent victimization.'

And, 'Incorporating this insight into regular clinical assessment could yield significant benefits for patients and the larger community.'
