  Annotation: Re-offending data for juvenile offenders (ages 10-17) in England and Wales for the 2006 cohort covers those juveniles released from custody in a facility or beginning a non-custodial court disposition or an out-of-court disposition (reprimand or final warning) in the first quarters of 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
Abstract: All measures in this report summarize data obtained from the Police National Computer on whether or not an offender has been proven to have re-offended during a 1-year follow-up period, as well as how many times and the seriousness of re-offenses committed. A comparison of the re-offending results for the 2000 and 2006 juvenile cohorts shows that the frequency rate for re-offending fell 18.7 percent from 151.4 to 123.1 offenses per 100 offenders. The number of offenses classified as most serious per 100 offenders fell 8.7 percent from 0.91 to 0.83 offenses; and the proportion of offenders re-offending decreased by 3.7-percent from 40.2 percent to 38.7 percent. The proportion of offenders who re-offended fell by 0.3 percent when controlling for changes in offender characteristics. Data for the 2006 cohort address frequency and severity rates, actual and predicted rates of re-offending, and time to first re-offense. The characteristics of re-offenders include gender, age, index offense group, previous offending history, index disposition, and ethnicity. Progress is shown for the frequency of re-offending for the 2005-2011 period, as well as progress for actual and predicted re-offending for the 2000-2006 period.
