CDCR Annual Report Now Available Online

Corrections – Year at a Glance’ Features 20 Years Worth of Data, New Recidivism Rates and Demographics for CDCR Population

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation today released the second edition of its annual report, Corrections – Year at a Glance, a compilation of frequently asked questions, facts and figures, and graphs about California’s largest state agency. The 2010 edition includes statistical updates on population trends, return-to-custody statistics, offender population figures and breakdowns and a review of the CDCR budget.

“Using current data about the adult and juvenile offender population demographics is crucial in identifying trends and shaping policies and procedures,” CDCR Secretary Matthew Cate said.

Corrections – Year at a Glance utilizes 20 years of data in some areas and includes graphic charts to illustrate trends over the years. It was created in a “fact book” format as a one-stop-shop for the most frequently asked questions about California’s corrections agency.

The report also includes chapters on the department’s budget, 20 years of demographics, a new section on recidivism rates, sections on adult and juvenile offenders, parolees and the three-strikes population; and rehabilitation programs.

The 39-page booklet was produced through a collaboration of all CDCR divisions. To view an online copy of Corrections – Year at a Glance, please visit:
