Abstract: The output (process) data constitute a statistical review of programs for the 5 years from fiscal year 1998 through fiscal year 2002. Outcome (impact) data begin with fiscal year 1992 and extend over an 11-year period through the end of fiscal year 2002. The evaluation information covers each of the following programs: sex offender treatment, substance abuse treatment, academic education (process data only), vocational education programs, special education (process data only), transitional training program (process data for fiscal year 2002 only), prerelease reintegration program, work release reintegration program, and InnerChange Program. The introductory section of the report provides a brief overview of the program evaluation process, including the primary goals identified by the program evaluation work team and the steps taken to meet these goals. The report's second section presents an overview of the data-analysis procedures, including definitions of output and outcome measurement indicators. The third section of the report provides program information organized to be consistent with the evaluation questions applied to the program. For each program there is a statement of program rationale, significant changes during fiscal year 2001 and fiscal year 2002, output data for the evaluation period, and outcome data for the evaluation period. Other sections of the report discuss some of the limitations of the data, methods, and use of the report, as well as future research directions and evaluation questions. Extensive figures and tables
