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.
