The Recommission of Crime: Recidivism

The Recommission of Crime: Recidivism

(p.110) Chapter 5 The Recommission of Crime: Recidivism
Criminals and Victims
Stanford University Press

This chapter presents an economic analysis of recividism or the recommission of crime. It illustrates the essentials of how the economic model of crime can be used as a framework for analyzing how a criminal might decide to commit the crime all over again. Recidivism is empirically examined using a special data set that tracks criminal careers from a sampling of cases tried in U.S. federal judicial districts. This empirical analysis illustrates the application of econometric duration analysis in the study of recidivism and allows investigation of how specific crimes, sanctioning, and rehabilitation can influence individual-level recidivism.

Keywords:   recividism, recommission, crime, economic model of crime, sanctioning, rehabilitation, econometric duration analysis
