Award Description: This research will draw on more than 90,000 criminal cases that have yielded a conviction in U.S. urban courts between 1990 and 2008 to explore changes over time in the magnitude of racial and ethnic differences in the probability of incarceration, and how such changes have differed across urban county contexts. As outlined in the proposal, it is anticipated that at least three papers would be developed from the project and submitted to top-tier peer-reviewed journals.
Project Description: To date the project activities have focused on data collection as outlined in the research proposal. The main accomplishment thus far is that all publicly available data on the sentencing of criminal defendants from the State Court Processing Statistics (SCPS) have been collected and the variables from this collectoin that will be used in the analysis have been created.
Jobs Summary: One faculty position was retained. (Total jobs reported: 0)
