Correlates and Predictors of Arrest Rates for Incarcerated Offenders

  • Rudy Haapanen
Part of the Research in Criminology book series (RESEARCH CRIM.)


The focus of this chapter will be primarily on patterns of association (correlations)1 between arrest rates and other variables for which data were available: lifestyle variables, such as drug use, marital/family status, and employment; background variables; and variables related to the prison or probation sentences of the offenders in the sample. These analyses were intended primarily to explore the usefulness of these data for understanding differences in arrest rates among those offenders for whom this kind of information was available. Because of the nature of the sample, generalization of the present findings to other offenders is not warranted. Due to the nature of the data, their usefulness even for understanding relationships within this sample are somewhat limited. Before presenting the findings, some discussion of these limitations is in order.
