      Measuring recidivism is an established method for examining the effects of penal interventions. Over the last decades the automation of police and judiciary data has opened up opportunities to do large-scale recidivism research. The WODC has made an inventory of the studies that are carried out in Europe. This study appears in the new series: WODC-studies on recidivism - Fact sheet 2006-11.
