Study: 1.5mn black men missing from daily life in US

A study in the US has found that one-point-five million African-American men remain unaccounted for across the country, which could threaten the future of black population.
An analysis of the 2010 census revealed more than one out of six black men between the ages of 25 and 54 are missing from everyday life. Early deaths or imprisonment are mentioned as main reasons of the disappearances. Black women in the same age group, who are not in jail, outnumber black men in that category: For every 100 black women in this age group living outside of jail, there are only 83 black men. This is while the equivalent number is 99 among whites. Some analysts believe the missing-men phenomenon disrupts family formation, leading to lower marriage in the black population.
