Samenvatting Female dui offenders who participated in a controlled, random assignment dui intervention study, the mississippi dui probation follow-up project, were compared to their male counterparts on demographic, drinker status and recidivism variables. in coparison to men, women in the project were less likely to be married, more likely to be between 30 and 50 years of age, less likely to have less than a 9th grade education, less likely to be screened as a high-problem-riskdrinker, less likely to have prior dui and public drunkenness arrests and less likely to recidivate. the effects of short-term rehabilitation, 1 year's probation and administration of the life activitiesinventory-current status questionnaire (lai-csq) on long-term recidivism rates of women were examined. the analysis for screened low-problem-risk women was inconclusive due to lack of statistical power. however, the repeated administration of the lai-scq was detrimental for screened high-problem-risk women and tended to be detrimental for women with fewer than 12 years of education. implicaitons for intervening with female duis are discussed.
