Million Dollar Blocks

Researchers and designers at Columbia University's Spatial Information Design Lab (SIDL) have gathered hard-to-access data on inmates and their last residential address to combine an innovative graphic tool. Million dollar blocks illustrates blocks in 5 major cities where the combined cost of incarcerating residents of specific blocks costs more than $1 million per year. At a time when more than 2 million Americans are incarcerated, this is a compelling illustration of a critical issue!
