Offender Outcomes and Characteristics

CDCR develops a number of reports related to offender outcomes (e.g. arrests, convictions and returns to prison) and offender characteristics (e.g. sentence type, commitment offense).


Offender Data Points

CDCR produces Offender Data Points twice a year. Offender Data Points contains tables and charts describing the demographics (e.g. gender, age) and characteristics (e.g. length of stay, commitment offense) of CDCR’s prison population over a two-year period.

Learn more about offender data points.


Offender Recidivism

The Recidivism Report is produced on an annual basis and studies the reoffending patterns (arrests, convictions, and returns to prison) of all CDCR offenders released during a given fiscal year. Recidivism rates are reported by offender demographics (e.g. gender, age) and characteristics (e.g. commitment offense, length of stay).

Juvenile Recidivism

The Division of Juvenile Justice Recidivism Report is produced on an annual basis and studies the reoffending patterns (arrests, convictions, and returns to prison) of youth released from the Division of Juvenile Justice during a given fiscal year. Recidivism rates are reported by youth demographics (e.g. gender, age) and characteristics (e.g. commitment offense, length of stay).
