Abstract

This paper examines various characteristics of specific groups of offenders in an Irish prison and determines if perceived differences between these groups are statistically valid using some of the techniques available through offender profiling. Statistical differences (chi(2); Fisher's exact test) in some characteristics were found between the various offender groups. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
