Abstract: This report highlights eight States that have achieved reductions in statewide recidivism in recent years: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. The report focuses on statewide recidivism data for adults released in 2007 and 2010 with a 3-year follow-up period, offering a current snapshot of criminal justice outcomes in these States. The report also features examples of recidivism-reduction strategies and programs that the States have undertaken in this timeframe, as well as additional data on the State’s criminal justice populations through 2013.This report follows a 2012 National Reentry Resource Center report featuring seven additional States that had lowered recidivism since 2005. Highlighting an interesting cross-section of States representing different regions of the nation, sizes in prison populations, and correctional systems. These two reports demonstrate that it is possible for States to achieve significant reductions in statewide recidivism through system-level change. 1 appendix and 22 endnotes
