Abstract:

Victimization in prison – including violent victimization in general and rape in particular – has been the focus of considerable academic attention. This paper contributes to this body of literature by using data from a national survey of inmates to examine the determinants of prison victimization – alternately defined as any victimization, violent victimization and rape. Multivariate statistical techniques are used to examine the effect of individual-level factors such as prior victimization, mental health diagnosis, substance abuse, misconduct in prison, time incarcerated, offense charge type (e.g., interpersonal vs. other), criminal history and demographic characteristics (e.g., age, sex, race, ethnicity) on the likelihood of each type of victimization. The implications of these findings for both policy and theory are considered.
