The Level of Service Inventory-Revised with English women prisoners: A needs and reconviction analysis.

By E. J. Palmer and Clive R. Hollin


This study examines the Level of Service Inventory—Revised (LSI-R) with a sample of English women prisoners. As data from an English sample of women offenders have not previously been published, a full psychometric examination is presented. Comparison of the women's scores with English male data showed a number of differences across areas of criminogenic need, although there was no difference in overall level of risk of reconviction. The predictive validity of the LSI-R with respect to reconviction showed reconvicted offenders to have elevated LSI-R subscales scores and total scores and to be in higher security bands. Multivariate analyses showed reconviction and time to reconviction to be predicted by the LSI-R total score, the Companions subscale, and the LSI-R security bands
