The Effect of Job Training Programs at a Juvenile Correctional Facility in Japan

Wada, Kenji; Toda, Akihito; Kazuki, Tomura

We consider the effect of characteristics of prison inmates in general and the job training program participation in particular on the recidivism in Japan. By employing individual level dataset from a Kawagoe Juvenile Correctional Facility, we find that some of the inmates characterstics will lower recidivism and the participation in job training is effective in lowering the probability of re-entry into prison.
