To be an alcoholic or drug addict (ALKY = 1) decreases the probability of NONE but does not change the relative probability of FEL versus MIS. On the other hand, the effects of A AR are very similar but opposite in sign; to be older at release increases the probability of NONE without affecting the relative probabilities of FEL versus MIS. Finally, the effects of RACE and CONVBS are very similar to those of ALKY and LENG. To be white (RACE = 1) or to have more prior convictions decreases the probability of NONE but has no significant effect on the relative probability of FEL versus MIS.
