CONCLUSION Taken together, the available national data on long-term prisoners and long-term incarceration suggest a growing reliance on imprisonment, and on long prison terms, as a response to crime. As prison populations soar in state and federal correctional systems in the United States, an important component of the increase is that more offenders will serve longer prison terms. A single offender sentenced to a 25-year minimum sentence will occupy a cell for 25 person years. In financial terms, if the cost of incarceration in a jurisdiction is $15,000 per cell per year (a low estimate for maximum security confinement), a single 2 5-year inmate represents an "investment" of $3 75,000 for operating costs alone (not including construction costs or debt service to build the prison).
