Aug. 7, 2013: CBA seminar by economist Mike Wilson as part of national forum on criminal justice
On Wednesday, August 7, in a seminar following the National Forum on Criminal Justice, Mike Wilson will give a presentation on cost-benefit analysis (CBA) from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Loyola University Chicago. The forum is Aug. 4-6 in Chicago and will be hosted by the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA), the National Criminal Justice Association, and the IJIS Institute; JRSA is hosting Wilson’s post-conference seminar.
The seminar will provide a step-by-step description of the methodology used to create a cost-benefit model for programs designed to reduce crime. It is designed to be practical, giving analysts the resources to develop a cost-benefit model in their state.
Mike works throughout the country as a consultant on CBA and criminal justice. Previously he worked as an economist for the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission and as the director of the state’s Statistical Analysis Center. Mike has given a two-part CBKB webinar presentation, “Cost-Benefit Analysis for Justice Policy: A Step-by-Step Guide,” and has written a guest blog post for our website.
