Expenditures on corrections exceeded $44 billion in 1997:
  • An increase from $9 billion in 1982; and
  • This amount does not include the cost of arrest and sentencing processes nor does it take into account the cost to victims and/or society.


    More than $30 billion was spent by federal and state correctional agencies in FY 2002, an increase of nearly 3.5 percent from 2001.
