Risk Of Recidivism

Do Socio Demographic and Criminal History Variables Increase or Reduce a Sex Offender’s Risk of Recidivism? Analysis of Norwegian Population Data

Claire Hargreaves, from the Lancaster University, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Traditional and New Forms of Crime and Deviance,” under the title “Do Socio Demographic and Criminal History Variables Increase or Reduce a Sex Offender’s Risk of Recidivism? Analysis of Norwegian Population Data”. Here is the abstract: This paper investigates the effects of socio demographic (e.g. fatherhood, marriage, income, education) and criminal history (e.g. age at first conviction, previously received a prison sentence, previously received a community sentence) variables on a convicted sex offender’s risk of recidivism. I examine Norwegian population data over the period 1984-2009, examining samples of male offenders who have been convicted of a sex crime under the age of 21 in a Norwegian court. Through discrete time hazard models, which allow for changing socio demographic states over time, I investigate whether socio demographic and criminal history variables increase or reduce a convicted sex offender’s risk of recidivism from age 21. The findings are compared to those convicted of a violent offence and the never-convicted population.
