Day Reporting Center Completion: Comparison of Individual and Multilevel Models
Craddock, Amy
Crime & Delinquency, v55 n1 p105-133 2009
This study of 14 day reporting centers demonstrated that findings from analyses that take into account the clustering of clients into programs differ from those that ignore it. The multilevel analysis found that a higher likelihood of completion is associated with being older, White/non-Hispanic, having a current "other" offense, and having emotional problems. Probationers were less likely to complete if they had drug or alcohol problems, primarily criminal companions, and poor living situations. The more time spent in the program and the more contact hours received in employment services were also positively associated with completion. Although a substantial proportion of the variation in the likelihood of completion was found to be due to program-level factors, no specific program characteristics were significant.
