The Effect of Arrests on the Employment and Earnings of Young Men
Many young men commit crime and many are arrested. The author estimates the effect of arrests on the employment and earnings of arrestees using a large longitudinal data set constructed by merging police records with unemployment insurance earnings data. He finds that the effects of arrests are moderate in magnitude and rather short-lived. Copyright 1995, the President and Fellows of Harvard College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
