Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $40,000)

The purpose of this project is to examine state level variation in the composition of probation and parole populations over time. Multiple years (1975-2010) of data from the Annual Probation and Parole Survey will be concatenated with Uniform Crime Report (UCR) arrest data, U.S. Census and Bureau of Labor Statistics demographic and economic data, U.S. Health and Human Services welfare data (e.g., Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), Klarner's (2003) State Partisan Balance dataset, and Berry, Ringquist, Fording, and Hanson's (1998, 2012 update) Citizen and Government Ideology data. Analyses will include descriptive and correlational techniques to identify changes in the "typical" probationer and parolee, and cross-sectional time series to understand structural relationships and trends.
