An Analysis of the Effect of an Offender's Employment Status on the Type of Sentence Chosen by the Magistrate

In this paper we will consider the problem of estimating a multinomial logit model for choice behaviour, when the data has been collected using choice—based sampling. We illustrate the estimation process using a set of data collected by the National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders to investigate whether an offender's employment status affected the sentence chosen by the magistrate.
