Inter-Cohort Comparisons of Reincarceration Rates

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


The specific question addressed in this chapter is, “How did the transformation of Texas criminal justice in the 1980s, a period when the burgeoning prison population led to a dramatically expanded use of parole, affect recidivism patterns of successive yearly cohorts of parolees released between 1984 and 1987?” The primary analytic strategy is once again analysis of survival patterns and hazard rates.
