Samenvatting The report examines the personal characteristics of those traffic offenders convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) who comprise the CDUI Project's treatment research sample. The study assesses the degree to which the random assignment process has been successful in distributing Project clients among the various treatment groups, such that the personal characteristics of clients in each group are equivalent. This confirmation of the random assignment process also provides a concise description of persons on whom the determination of treatment effectiveness will be based. Fifteen client characteristics were examined including general demographics, socio-economic data, arrest and court related information, and diagnostic information. These characteristics were compared between treatment groups for each of three principal research designs, one for first offender DUI's and two for multiple offender DUI's. A composite of the two multiple offender samples was also analyzed.
