This paper examines relationship between local labor market conditions and ex-prisoner employment in Ohio. It asks: How do local labor market conditions (i.e., county-level unemployment rates) affect (1) the time it takes ex-prisoners to find a first job upon release, and (2) their ongoing post-prison employment experiences (during the first two years post release from prison)?
