Then, after crunching the census numbers, they found that a one percentage point increase in the male incarceration rate was associated with a 2.4-point reduction in the proportion of women who ever marry.

Could it be, however, that mass incarceration is a symptom of increasing social dysfunction, and that it was this social dysfunction that caused marriage to wither? For similar crimes, America imposes much harsher penalties than other rich countries.

For obvious reasons, convicts are excluded from the dating pool.

And many women also steer clear of ex-cons, which makes a big difference when one young black man in three can expect to be locked up at some point.

Mr Charles and Mr Luoh controlled for crime rates, as a proxy for social dysfunction, and found that it made no difference to their results.

They concluded that “higher male imprisonment has lowered the likelihood that women marry…and caused a shift in the gains from marriage away from women and towards men.” Learning and earning Similar problems afflict working-class whites, but they are more concentrated among blacks. The collapse of the traditional family has made black Americans far poorer and lonelier than they would otherwise have been.
