WRM: “Application of Big Data Analytics to Mass Incarceration Issues”

Feb 8, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Eric Stephens
Clemson University


With 5% of the world’s population in the United States, we house 25% of the word’s incarcerated population.
Prison populations in the United States have grown 700% from 1970-2005.
In a 2014 study of 30 states, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found that 3 in 4 prisoners released were arrested within 5 years.

Research Questions:
– How is “correction” defined?
– How is “correction” enacted in prison TCP?
– What impacts and correlations exist between TCP in prisons and the rate of “correction” as externally measured by recidivism?
