Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) / Randomized Field Experiment

Refers to an experimental research design in which participants are randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group. Most social scientists consider random assignment to lead to the highest level of confidence that observed effects are the result of the program and not other variables.

Corrections & Reentry

The correctional population in the United States includes adults under community supervision (on probation or parole), in state and federal prisons, and in local jails. Over the past three decades the correctional population has increased from approximately 1.8 million in 1980 to nearly 7 million in 2011, with the majority (70%) under the supervision of community corrections (probation or parole). During 2011, the number of persons under supervision of correctional authorities declined by 1.4%, marking the third consecutive year of decrease in the correctional population.[1]
