Arkansas surpasses all other states in the percentage of its children who have had a parent locked up, according to a new report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The report found that 16 percent of children in the state — a total of 109,000 kids — have a parent who was ever incarcerated in prison or in jail.
