Results First

Seeking to identify the most effective correctional programming available, New York is now utilizing the Results First computerized cost-benefit model also in use in 20 other states. Results First uses national research to identify programming options that work and then predicts how each of these options would impact the re-offending rates of a state’s correctional population.

With the assistance of the Pew Charitable Trusts and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, DCJS has customized the Results First cost-benefit tool for use in New York State and conducted simulations that help determine which interventions generate the most public safety at the lowest cost to taxpayers.

The Results First initiative also places strong emphasis on a program’s integrity and performance. Fidelity and evaluation systems are utilized to verify that funded programs are delivering effective services and that the outcomes predicted by the cost-benefit modeling are being achieved. This work is a natural extension of New York’s commitment to data-driven decision-making. Results First updates will periodically be posted to this webpage.

Published by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the MacArthur Foundation, this case study details how New York State has used Results First to identify cost-efficient, effective alternatives to incarceration programs, distribute funding to those programs and develop a technical assistance program to help ensure they are implemented as intended to achieve desired outcomes.
