Is the following question kosher here?
I have read that incarcerated adults in the U.S. make up roughly 1% of the adult population, and the number of adults on probation or parole is approximately 2%. I'd like to know approximately what the incarceration rate is specifically for local jails, such as county jails.
Bonus: what are these rates for the state of New York?
If it doesn't work as written, can you suggest how to make it work, or where I could post it?
