The primary goal of this research study is to compare the relative 'fairness,' 'efficiency,' and 'effectiveness' of decriminalized administrative adjudication processes in two geographic areas, (Buffalo, New York and the State of North Dakota) with traditional adjudication programs in similar geographic areas (Syracuse, New York and the State of South Dakota, respectively). To accomplish this goal, information common to all selection sites was identified, collected and analyzed to determine if significant differences in impact existed on a series of criterion measures, the type and degree of impact, and whether obtained differences were attributable to specific causative factors. This report is produced in three volumes: Volume I contains the Analysis and Findings; Volume II contains the Discussion, Summary, Conclusions, and Appendices; Volume III is a Special Summary Report.
