Abstract: As stigmatized persons, registered sex offenders betoken instability in communities, with depressed home sale values associated with the presence of registered sex offenders. Using a spatial multilevel approach, the current study examines how registered sex offenders influence sale values of homes sold in 2015 for three U.S. counties (rural, suburban, and urban) located in Illinois and Kentucky within the social disorganization framework. Registered sex offenders were not associated with home sale values after accounting for neighborhood characteristics. The importance of neighborhood characteristics in a spatial multilevel framework and the ramifications of sex offender policies are highlighted.

Abstract: Using a propensity score matching technique, we examined the contextual effect of income inequality on health. After removing those who newly/recently moved into the area (<5 years), we further assessed which SES group showed an association between income inequality and health.
Bivariate analysis results from the unmatched sample show that adults living in high income-inequality counties have poorer health in all health measures (SRH, ADL, IADL, blood pressure, CESD, stroke, diabetes, psychiatric problem) except for heart problem. After propensity score matching, only the adverse association with self-rated health status (SRH) remained statistically significant at the 5% level. Psychiatric problems were also significantly more prevalent for adults living in high income-inequality counties when we compare adults who lived in the area at least 15 years. The significant association with poorer SRHS is likely to be observed between 40th and 80th wealth percentiles, between 40th and 90th income percentiles, and among individuals without college education.
The question of whether income inequality has a causal effect on health has been argued for several decades. Our findings suggest adverse effect of income inequality may exist in terms of self-rated general health status and psychiatric problem for middle- and high- economic groups (except for very high).

Abstract: Coconino County, the largest in Arizona by land area, is home to the college town of Flagstaff, vast mountain regions, as well as a number of federally-recognized American Indian tribes spread across its 18,661 square miles. With an adult probation population of roughly 1,100 supervised persons per month, the geographic diversity present in Coconino County provides for a number of challenges when considering access to services and the distance required to satisfy in-person technical supervision requirements. Additionally, the supervised population faces barriers to successful completion of supervision, including high rates of offenders on supervision for DUI or drug offenses and a roughly 50% unemployment rate among the supervised population. The Coconino County Online Probation Education Program (COPE) was developed in an effort to alleviate these issues, offering virtual office visits, remote cognitive-behavioral treatment, educational modules, and mentoring services at a series of rural sites in an effort to reduce recidivism. This presentation will discuss preliminary process and impact evaluation findings, as well as lessons learned and possible considerations for future adaptations.
