Various international validation studies have found satisfactory to good predictive validity for the Static-99, with the area under the curve (AUC) between 59% and 95%. This study is the first evaluation of the predictive accuracy of the Static-99 among sex offenders in Switzerland. The Static-99 scores of 69 violent/sex offenders in Switzerland were assessed using data from their psychiatric assessments. Recidivism was operationalized as reconviction assessed from penal records. The Static-99 risk levels were predictive for recidivism (AUC = .758) among our population. The results are discussed on the basis of the literature.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Accuracy of the Static-99 in Predicting Recidivism in Switzerland</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Vetter, Stefan</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2009-08-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-05-18T09:09:08Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Vetter, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Held, Leonhard</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-05-18T09:09:08Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
