What Contributes to Recidivism?
Thinking About Corrections


The Urban Institute has released a double whammy examining factors contributing to recidivism.  Working in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Corrections, the Massachusetts Recidivism Study contains three interrelated study components addressed in two new reports.  Massachusetts Recidivism Study: A Closer Look at Releases and Returns to Prison analyzes DOC administrative data and recidivism on a variety of statistical and demographic fronts.  Its companion report, Reincarcerated: The Experiences of Men Returning to Massachusetts Prisons examines the results of parole office focus groups, as well as interviews of returning recidivists.
