Recidivism Rates and Primary Offenses for Inmates Released 2012

Recidivism Rates by Primary Offense (2012 Releases)

This graph shows that inmates in for Drugs and/or Murder/Manslaughter have the lowest recidivism rates. Inmates in for Burglary offenses have higher than average recidivism rates.

The graph above shows that inmates serving a prison sentence for "other" violent offenses (like aggravated assault, battery, kidnapping, arson) have the lowest recidivism rates, followed by burglary and murder offenders. Inmates serving time for weapons, sex offenses, robbery, other non-violent offenses (like DUI, driving with suspended or revoked license, failure to register), and drug offenses have higher recidivism rates than the average recidivism rate of 2012 releases.
