LGBT individuals more likely to be incarcerated

LGBT individuals more likely to be incarcerated
Meyer and colleagues drew data from the 2011-2012 National Inmate Survey, which interviewed a representative sample of people in U.S. prisons and jails. Their analysis found that rates of incarceration for lesbian, gay and bisexual people were 1,882 per 100,000. That is more than three times the “already high” incarceration rate of 612 per 100,000 U.S. population, the authors write in the American Journal of Public Health.
