New NIJ Journal Article Describes Cost-Benefit Analysis

"Cost-Benefit Analysis of Criminal Justice Reforms" is the newest article in the upcoming issue of the NIJ Journal, which will be released later this summer. (NIJ has started releasing articles as soon as they are ready instead of waiting until the whole magazine is available.)

This article by the Urban Institute's John Roman describes key factors to consider when applying cost-benefit analysis to criminal justice projects and programs. He examines these factors in the context of NIJ’s recent Multisite Adult Drug Court Evaluation study. The article includes vital recommendations for improving cost-benefit analysis of criminal justice reforms and making public policy more effective.
