In a recent project, for example, recidivism rates were compared for offenders who received an intensive correction order versus those given short prison sentences. With careful modelling to properly account for the nature of the crime, the analysis can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of intensive correction orders in reducing recidivism rates.
This ACEMS Public Lecture featured Dr Suzanne Poynton and Dr Joanna Wang from the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
This ACEMS Public Lecture is organised by the ACEMS node located at UTS and is supported by the Statistical Society of Australia.
