NCCD is the nation’s leading developer of actuarial risk assessment. We have developed risk assessment systems for adult corrections, juvenile justice, child welfare, adult protective services, and public financial assistance programs. We provide valid and reliable assessments, which are critical to maximizing efficient use of agency resources and the possibility of positive outcomes.
Since the early 1980s, NCCD has promoted the use of actuarial risk assessment combined with needs assessments to establish clear direction to adult, youth, and family-serving agencies to help serve client populations more effectively. NCCD’s risk and needs assessments assist social and correctional services agencies by providing the following:
NCCD works closely with each jurisdiction to ensure that assessments are constructed, validated, and customized for the population served. All risk assessments are tested to ensure racial equity, and risk assessments in the adult corrections and juvenile justice fields are tested to ensure gender equity.
