Over the next five years, policies in 28states could avoid a projected $ 3.1billion and give 240 thousand life years back to justice-involved individuals.

How the Model Works

Our probabilistic data model simulates people moving through the criminal justice system to forecast impact. We project five-year impacts on cost, population changes, and life years at each step, without double counting as policies are added. Already modeling policies in your state? Let's work together.
