Dr. Demuth’s research focuses on the correlates (race, ethnicity, citizenship, gender, and age) of crime and criminal case process decision making. His current research projects include (1) an examination of changes in the age and gender composition of crime over time for Hispanic, Asian, Black, and White populations; (2) an investigation of the joint impact of race/ethnicity and citizenship status on case processing decisions in the federal courts; and (3) an analysis of the social relationships and delinquency of Hispanic, black, and white adolescents.
