Research Description

David Harding studies poverty and inequality, urban neighborhoods, education, incarceration, and prisoner reentry. He uses both qualitative and quantitative methods. His current projects include the social and economic reintegration of former prisoners, neighborhoods and prisoner reentry, the effects of incarceration on crime, employment, and health, and causal inference for contextual effects research. 

For prisoner reentry, incarceration, and related research, see www.prisonerreentryresearch.org.

Most recently, Harding is the author of On the Outside: Prisoner Reentry and Reintegration (Chicago, 2019).
