This study examines the criminal activities of a group of
young offenders after their release from prison to parole supervision.
Previous studies have examined recidivism using arrests as the
principal measure, whereas this study examines a variety of factors,
including length of incarceration, age, sex, race, prior arrest
record, prosecutions, length of time between parole and rearrest,
parolees not prosecuted for new offenses but having their parole
revoked, rearrests in states other than the paroling states, and the
nature and location of rearrest charges. Parolees in the 22 states
covered in this study account for 50 percent of all state prisoners
paroled in the United States in 1978.
