Methods for estimating the crime commission rates of criminal offenders are discussed in the context of a potential selective incapacitation strategy that would assign different sentence lengths according to whether the estimated crime rate is above or below a specified threshold.Any such strategy is subject to error because the true crime rate of an offender may differ from his estimated crime ra......
