Phelps (2013). The Paradox of Probation: Community Supervision in the Age of Mass Incarceration. Law & Policy 35(1-2): 51-80.

Phelps (2017). Mass Probation: Toward a More Robust Theory of State Variation in Punishment. Punishment & Society 19(1): 53-73.

These two papers used Bureau of Justice Statistics data on annual probation and prison totals. For the most up-to-date statistics, I recommend using their Corrections Statistical Analysis Tool. For crime statistics from the UCR, I recommend visiting Jacob Kaplan's website. Below, you can find all the STATA do files for the analyses in the published papers. (NOTE: These files should open in STATA or Notepad.)
