The data consisted of their parole conditions, focusing on two categories of either traditional parole conditions (N= 200) or GPS monitoredconditions (N= 200), as well as the number of times parolees breached the arrangement of their parole. The breaches were detected to be normally distributed with a mean of 6.50 (SD=2.26), skewness was not apparent, and the kurtosis was mesokurtic. This data presented no outliers, although there were 4 missing values in the recorded breaches variable.Methods The aim of this study is to establish if there was substantial distinctions between the number of documented breaches for traditional parole conditions or GPS monitored conditions.
