Abstract:

Summarizes the results from a study that documents crime and criminal punishment trends from 1981 to 1999 in eight countries: Australia, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. Each report deals with six crimes that are similarly defined across the eight countries: murder, rape, non-commercial robbery, serious assault, household burglary, and completed motor vehicle theft. Each report uses the same set of measures of criminal punishment, including sentence length imposed, percent of sentence served, and probabilities of arrest, of conviction, and of incarceration.
