High school experience and the risk of adult incarceration

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This study assesses the effects of high school educational experiences on the risk of incarceration for young men aged 19-36 using event history analysis and National Longitudinal Survey of Youth data. High school education serves as a defining moment in an individual's life course. Young men who enroll in secondary occupational course work significantly reduce their likelihood of incarceration both overall and net of differences in the adult labor market. High school student/ teacher ratios and student composition also significantly affect an individual's risk of incarceration.
