Prisoner Reentry Pilot Study, Phase II

a PSC Small Fund Research Project

Investigators:   David J. Harding, Jeffrey Morenoff

We seek a small grant from the PSC Mueller fund to support Phase II of our Pilot Study on
Prisoner Reentry in Southeast Michigan. This research is a qualitative study of the experiences of
24 individuals (16 men, 8 women) released from the Michigan Department of Corrections in the
second half of 2007. It involves in-depth, semi-structured interviews with these individuals
regarding their pre-prison, prison, and post-prison experiences. Its goals are (1) to identify and
describe the economic and social processes that structure the labor market and recidivism
outcomes of individuals released from prison and (2) to lay the methodological groundwork for a
larger, externally funded, longitudinal study of individuals released from prison. Other funding
(from OVPR and Rackham) is supporting an in-prison interview and two follow-up interviews
(conducted one month and two months after release) with each subject. We seek funding to
extend our study by three additional interviews to be conducted 6, 9 and 12 months after each
subject's release from prison.

Funding Period: 12/31/2007 to 03/31/2009
