Static-2002R is an actuarial risk tool for evaluating the risk of sexual recidivism among adult males with a history of sexual offending. Static-2002R assesses the likelihood of sexual recidivism as well as other actuarial risk tools commonly used with this population. One desirable feature of Static-2002 is that it assesses some theoretically meaningful characteristics presumed to be the cause of recidivism risk (persistence of sexual offending, deviant sexual interests, general criminality).

Policy and Practice
We recommend evaluators use Static-2002R instead of Static-2002.
Note that Static-99R training is not sufficient to score Static-2002R. We recommend that evaluators obtain Static-2002R training before using the scale.

*Note that the Static-2002 Coding Rules (2009) apply to all Static-2002R items, with the exception of the age item, which has updated weights. Coding rules for the age item are included in the Age Coding For Static-2002R (August 2012) document and in combination with the Static-2002 Coding Rules (2009) comprise the full coding rules for Static-2002R.
