Annotation: A REPORT OF A STUDY TO DETERMINE IF INCREASED FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO NEWLY RELEASED PAROLEES WOULD INCREASE CHANCES FOR PAROLE SUCCESS.
Abstract: IN THIS STUDY, AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVING A STIPEND OF $470 WAS COMPARED WITH 2 CONTROL GROUPS, 1 RECEIVING THE STANDARD $20 'GATE MONEY' UPON RELEASE AND ANOTHER $50. SEVERAL INDICATIONS OF PAROLEE SUCCESS WERE USED, PAROLE VIOLATION, REARREST, PAROLE OFFICER ASSESSMENT, AND EMPLOYMENT. WHILE THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP CONSISTENTLY PERFORMED BETTER THAN THE CONTROL GROUP, THE DIFFERENCES WERE NOT STATISICALLY SIGNIFICANT AND NO CAUSAL INFERENCE CAN BE DRAWN.
