概要 In this article we study the effectiveness of three training school programs, namely, long-term, general short-term and special short-term programs, compared with probation on recidivism of Japanese juvenile delinquents with differing criminal experiences. We employ the logit/individual lognormal split-population model to examine the relationship between the form of treatment and the time until, as well as the probability of, eventual reincarceration. We obtained and analyzed official crime data from the Japanese Ministry of Justice and found that, in terms of probability, delinquents sent to training schools for long-term and general short-term programs were less likely to be reincarecerated than those placed on probation, but we did not find the same pattern for individuals who were enrolled in the special short-term program. However, none of the three programs significantly affected the timing of reincarceration relative to probation. We discuss the implications of these results.
