A Bayesian Meta-Analysis of Drug Court Cost-Effectiveness
Group: Urban Institute District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute
This report is the final report of the first year of DCPI’s efforts to develop a meta-analytic tool to predict the costs and benefits of criminal justice programs implemented in the District. It presents a Bayesian meta-analysis of drug courts and pairs these with nonparametric benefit estimates derived from the Multisite Adult Drug Court Evaluation and simulation-based costs based on the Superior Court Drug Intervention Program. It provides a detailed methodological discussion and compares a number of commonly used meta-analytic methods, weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each, before presenting a relatively uncommon multilevel model which generalizes these methods. Conclusions discuss methodological and policy implications.
