Gender Differences on the Road to Redemption

How does gender impact the estimated point in time when the likelihood of a person with a criminal record committing a crime matches the likelihood of someone without a criminal record? Using data from the 1997 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, the authors found that women typically reach that point after 4 years of 'remaining crime free,' compared to men, who reach that point after somewhere between 7 and 10 years.
