Wow at 5.7% that is over 170,000 deaths in 2006. I wonder how that measures up with the total number of Iraqis and US military killed combined since 2003 to now?
That's 5.7 per 100,000, not 5.7 per 100. Slight difference.
Nationally the recidivism rate is 68%...this is over a decade old study! It is up 3% from the previous study...it went up during slick willie's time in office.
Reports on the reassert, reconviction, and reincarceration of former inmates who were tracked for 3 years after their release from prisons in 15 States in 1994. The former inmates represent two-thirds of all prisoners released in the United States that year. The report includes prisoner demographic characteristics (gender, race, Hispanic origin, and age), criminal record, types of offenses for which they were imprisoned, the effects of length of stay in prison on likelihood of reassert, and comparisons with a study of prisoners released in 1983.
Highlights include the following:
Released prisoners with the highest reassert rates were robbers (70.2%), burglars (74.0%), larcenists (74.6%), motor vehicle thieves (78.8%), those in prison for possessing or selling stolen property (77.4%), and those in prison for possessing, using, or selling illegal weapons (70.2%).
Within 3 years, 2.5% of released rapists were arrested for another rape, and 1.2% of those who had served time for homicide were arrested for homicide.
The 272,111 offenders discharged in 1994 had accumulated 4.1 million arrest charges before their most recent imprisonment and another 744,000 charges within 3 years of release.
