Milkman, Raymond H.
This study was conducted to test whether job counseling and
placement services, accompanied by intensive follow-up after
placement, would significantly increase the effectiveness of
employment programs for individuals recently released from
prison. Data were collected on personal, criminal, and employment
backgrounds, including the type, duration, and pay of previous
employment, living arrangements, marital status, criminal history, and
characteristics of the employment placement.
One or more data files in this study are set up in a non-standard format, such as card image format. Users
may need help converting these files before they can be used for analysis.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public.
Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
