Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab
The Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab (“Colorado Lab”) partners with the Office of Colorado’s Governor and works with state agencies to improve the lives of Colorado’s residents. This year, Mathematica is supporting the Colorado Lab in their partnership with the Colorado Department of Corrections to examine and document pre- and post-release services provided to formerly incarcerated individuals in Colorado and the frequency of recidivism for those who receive reentry support. The research team is conducting a study of reentry services, following the implementation of reforms passed by the Colorado General Assembly in 2014. The research team is also currently in the process of examining multiple sources of internal data to generate measures of program contact for reentry services and conduct a descriptive analysis of reentry service receipt.
