Abstract
This study examined empirical relationships between various court dispositions and the prevalence, incidence, and delay of domestic violence recidivism. It built on past research by examining the possible effects of formal and informal social controls at the individual level, as well as the contextual effects of community characteristics on individual behavior. The researchers collected information on 3,662 suspects arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence (specifically, assault against an intimate) in Hamilton County, Ohio, during August 1, 1993, to October 31, 1993, and January 1, 1995, to December 31, 1996. All arrestees in the sample were tracked until June 1998. The dataset includes information pertaining to demographic and background characteristics of suspects (e.g., race, age, means of support, education, employment, marital status, residential stability, number of children the suspect had, and if the suspect lived with a spouse and/or children at arrest), their criminal histories (prior convictions for misdemeanors and felonies, prior incarceration, alcohol/drug addiction, and pending charges), how their cases were disposed (e.g., no charges filed, charges dropped, acquitted at trial, sentenced to an offender program, probation, or jail), rearrests for domestic violence that occurred between the initial arrest and May 31, 1998, and the number of months that elapsed between case disposition and rearrest.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR03013.v1
