Gender Differences In Sentencing

If you click here you'll go to an excellent statistical analysis of sentencing for youth offenders in Canada. Included in the report are some facts about gender, including that males are more likely to be placed into custody and receive harsher sentences on an offense-by-offense basis. Before using these numbers I suggest checking two things: that the age differences between males and females be factored out, as well as Recidivism (repeat offenders). I can't tell from the abstract whether these were accounted for. StatCan is a high-quality organization, so it may be the case that this has already been done.
