Static-99R is a ten item actuarial assessment instrument created by R. Karl Hanson, Ph.D. and David Thornton, Ph.D. for use with adult males with a history of sexual offending who are at least 18 year of age at time of release to the community. In 2012, the age item for the original scale (Static-99) was updated, creating Static-99R. Static-99R is the most widely used sexual recidivism risk assessment instrument in the world, and is extensively used in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and many European nations.
Coding questions for Static-99R, Static-2002R, and RM-2000 may be submitted to Dr. Yolanda Fernandez HERE. Questions on STABLE-2007 and ACUTE-2007 may be submitted to Dr. Anton Schweighofer and Dr. Geris Serran HERE. Please consult the coding manual and FAQs prior to submission. Routine questions are typically answered within a week. Complex questions will be referred to a group of experts for discussion and a response will be forwarded to the requestor as quickly as possible. Please be aware that discussions occur on volunteer time and given the busy schedules of those involved, it may take weeks before a response is provided. We appreciate your patience.
