Contingency Analysis of Prison Inmates and Staff

Project Overview

Whether we want to believe it or not, the prison system in the United States is a booming business.   Thousands of inmates and prison staff members across the country come from varying backgrounds and possess many different characteristics.  Is the fact that a prison inmate is on death row independent of gender?  Is the fact that a prison staff member is a corrections officer independent of gender?  In this project, students will answer these questions by performing contingency analysis on actual real-time data gathered from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections website.
