Rearrests of Juvenile Felons


Rearrests of juventile felons by type of court in which they were tried.




A two-way classification, see table.


The data (taken from Agresti, 1996) arise from a sample of juveniles convicted of felony in Florida in 1987. Matched pairs were formed using criteria such as age and the number of previous offences. For each pair, one subject was handled in the juvenile court and the other was transferred to the adult court. Whether or not the juvenile was rearrested by the end of 1988 was then noted. Here the question of interest is whether the true proportions rearrested were identical for the adult and juvenile court assignments?
