Methods of examining
re-involvement

Aboriginal people are more likely to become re-involved and
are re-involved more frequently

Robbery offenders most likely
to return to correctional services

Almost two-thirds of Aboriginal releasees were re-involved compared to less than one-third of non-Aboriginal releasees

Aboriginal female re-involvement rates are noticeably higher than re-involvement rates of non-Aboriginal males or females

Re-involvement rates are more influenced by age for Aboriginal people than non-Aboriginal people

Persons with custodial involvements are more likely to return to correctional supervision

The larger the number of previous correctional involvements,
the greater the risk of re-involvement

The more criminogenic needs, the greater the likelihood
of re-involvement

The more criminogenic needs, the greater the likelihood
of re-involvement 0-1, 2-3 needs

The more criminogenic needs, the greater the likelihood
of re-involvement 4, 5-6 needs
