Note: The National Institute of Corrections added this webinar to its library in August 2012.
Thanks to everyone who attended our webinar on linking evaluation and cost-benefit analysis in criminal justice. 118 participants from 31 states participated in the live webinar on March 24, 2011. The recorded webinar and PowerPoint slides are now available below.
Many thanks to Elizabeth Drake, senior research associate at the Washington State Institute for Public Policy, for lending her expertise to this webinar, as well as to Valerie Levshin of the Cost-Benefit Analysis Unit at the Vera Institute of Justice for co-presenting.
This webinar explains how evaluation results are linked to cost-benefit calculations and reviews different approaches to evaluating criminal justice initiatives. Beth describes how meta-analysis—a method to examine what existing research and evaluations show about programs and policies—is conducted and applied to cost-benefit studies.
This training is ideally suited for people interested in meta-analysis and/or conducting cost-benefit studies of criminal justice programs and policies.
