Recidivism Rate

Story Behind the Curve

We want the trend of recidivism rates in Vermont to go down.

Recidivism is defined per statute as follows: 

Citation-2011 Act 41 Section 5: "The Department shall calculate the rate of recidivism based upon offenders who are sentenced to more than one year of incarceration who, after release from incarceration, return to prison within three years for a conviction for a new offense or a violation of supervision resulting, and the new incarceration sentence or time served on the violation is at least 90 days."

The yearly rates show an increase leading to the highest rate in 2014.  However, the 2014 rate has reliability issues due to changes in software that stored the data needed to calculate the measure.  The trend indicate that the rate has remained stable.
