Juvenile Recidivism: A Comparison of Three Prediction Instruments.
Ashford, Jose B.; LeCroy, Craig Winston
Adolescence, v25 n98 p441-50 Sum 1990
Compared three models to predict recidivism in juvenile offenders. Discriminant analyses performed on data from 91 juvenile parolees (42 nonrecidivists, 49 recidivists) revealed that Orange County Risk Assessment Instrument and Arizona Juvenile Risk Assessment Form were able to predict recidivism 18-22 percent better than chance. Contra Costa Risk Assessment Instrument was unable to discriminate between recidivists and nonrecidivists. (Author/NB)
