Recidivism Forecasting Challenge

Closing Date
The National Institute of Justice’s “Recidivism Forecasting Challenge” aims to increase public safety and improve the fair administration of justice across the United States. The Challenge aims to improve the ability to forecast recidivism using person- and place-based variables with the goal of improving outcomes for those serving a community supervision sentence. Results from the Challenge will provide critical information to community corrections departments that may help facilitate more successful reintegration into society for previously incarcerated persons and persons on parole.
