          WASHINGTON—The Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics today released Recidivism of Prisoners Released in 24 States in 2008: A 10-Year Follow-Up Period (2008–2018). This report presents recidivism statistics on state prisoners released in 2008 during the 10 years following their release. It describes the recidivism patterns of state prisoners by their demographic characteristics, commitment offense and prior criminal history. This is BJS’s first recidivism study with a 10-year follow-up period.

          In July 2021, BJS released Recidivism of Prisoners Released in 34 States in 2012: A 5-Year Follow-Up Period (2012-2017), a report that presented recidivism statistics on prisoners released in 2012 with a 5-year follow-up period. Though they follow different release cohorts, the report released today and the prior report show similar trends, including a decline in the annual arrest percentage for state prisoners between year 1 and year 5 following release. The longer follow-up period of 10 years featured in the new report shows that the annual arrest percentage continued to decline between year 6 and year 10 following release.
