However, there is no investigation supporting the predictive accuracy of the VRAG in the German language area. The VRAG scores of 79 violent and sexual offenders in Switzerland were assessed based on data from their psychiatric expert opinions. The VRAG scores were compared to subsequent recidivism as shown in the official criminal records. Consistent with past research in the English language area, the VRAG yielded a satisfying predictive accuracy (ROC area = .73), demonstrating its usefulness for risk assessment of violent delinquency in the Swiss cultural and German language area.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-14T09:03:25Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-14T09:03:25Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Steinbach, Jennifer</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Grunewald, Sonja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Prediction of violent and sexual offences : a replication study of the VRAG in Switzerland</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Noll, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2006-03</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Steinbach, Jennifer</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/37388"/> <dc:creator>Noll, Thomas</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
