Annotation: THIS TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE REPORT FOR PROJECT PERSONNEL REPRODUCES AND EXAMINES THE THREE QUARTERLY REPORTS FROM THE CLIENT-ORIENTED DATA FOR EVALUATION (CODE) INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR A DIFFERENT SAMPLE PROJECT.
Abstract: IT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO CLARIFY THE CONTENTS OF THE COMPUTER-GENERATED REPORTS AND TO ANSWER QUESTIONS THAT MAY ARISE ABOUT THEIR INTERPRETATION. THE THREE REPORTS ARE THE QUARTERLY STATISTICAL REPORTS, THE ACTIVE CLIENT REPORT, AND THE CLIENT FOLLOWUP CALENDAR. A PAGE-BY-PAGE EXAMINATION OF THE CONTENTS OF THE STATISTICAL REPORTS INCLUDES A DESCRIPTION OF THE TITLE PAGE CONTAINING THE PROJECT NAME, AN ARBITRARILY ASSIGNED PROJECT NUMBER, THE DATE OF THE REPORT, AND A TABLE OF CONTENTS. OTHER PAGES CONTAIN FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS OF SEX, AGE, AND ETHNICITY FOR THREE CATEGORIES OF CLIENTS (WHEREVER POSSIBLE) AND DISTRIBUTIONS BY MONTH OF INTAKE AND TERMINATION (INCLUDING TOTAL INTAKE, TERMINATION, AND FOLLOWUP FORMS). DISTRIBUTIONS OF SOURCES OF CLIENT REFERRALS AND CLIENT RELATION TO THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM AT INTAKE ARE PRESENTED FOR EACH OF THE THREE CATEGORIES, AND TABULATIONS OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY REASONS FOR REFERRAL TO THE PROJECT FOR EACH CATEGORY ARE INCLUDED. FINALLY, TABULATIONS OF CLIENT LEVEL OF INVOLVEMENT WITH THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM AT INTAKE, TERMINATION, AND FOLLOWUP (THE MOST COMPLEX TABULATIONS IN THE STATISTICAL REPORT) ARE FURNISHED. THE STATISTICAL REPORT TABULATES SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE PROJECT AND DISTRIBUTIONS OF REASONS FOR TERMINATION FROM THE PROJECT BOTH FOR CLIENTS TERMINATED WITHIN THE LAST 12 MONTHS AND FOR ALL TERMINATED CLIENTS. THE ACTIVE CLIENT REPORT LISTS THE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER, AGE AT INTAKE, SEX, ETHNIC BACKGROUND, INTAKE DATE, AND DAYS IN THE PROGRAM FOR ALL ACTIVE CLIENTS. THE CLIENT FOLLOWUP CALENDAR LISTS THE SAME INFORMATION PLUS TERMINATION DATE AND FOLLOWUP DUE DATE. UNLIKE THE ACTIVE CLIENT REPORT, IT IS SORTED BY FOLLOWUP DUE DATE, NOT BY CLIENT IDENTIFICATION NUMBER. AN APPENDIX CONTAINS GROUPINGS OF REFERABLE OFFENSES.
