Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $69,892)

The NE SAC proposes to do a recidivism study. The SAC has a data sharing agreement in place with the State Court Administrator and with the ability to link data from several sources across agencies due to a previously funded SJS project, the Justice Data Transformation System (JDTS). The JDTS uses deterministic matching, followed by a probabilistic matching algorithm. The SAC will create custom cohorts and choose the recidivism time periods within the application. The JDTS also can produce de-identified datasets for research. This is the first effort by the SAC to do a recidivism study and the intent is to operationalize this after the initial effort and standardize the process to conduct annual cohorts and include outcome information for varying time periods.
