Description: Recidivism is defined as the "tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend". This dataset tracks former criminals from Iowa over a 3 year period after their release from prison to see whether or not they were convicted of a new crime during that time. The recidivism reporting year is the fiscal year (year ending June 30) marking the end of the three year tracking period. Included are the following variables: Fiscal Year Released (the year the individual was released from Prison), the Race, Ethnicity, Sex, and Age of individual when released. Also included are details about the original crime committed along with whether that individual committed a new crime (Recidivism - Return to Prison) within the 3 year window.
