38th Annual APPAM Fall Research Conference, 2016
Second-Place Poster

My poster presentation of research on prisoner-visitor social networks was the second-place winner at the Saturday, November 5th session of the 2016 APPAM Fall Research Conference. Descriptive analyses of prisoner-visitor social networks using latent class analysis (LCA) demonstrated that many prisoner-visitor social networks were family-member dominated, relatively large and diverse, and included few homophilous visitors (those of similar age/gender). After including multiple controls, there was no correlation between prisoner-visitor network types and odds of recidivism.
