The Static-2002 was designed for the same purpose as the Static-99, namely, assessing the recidivism risk of adult male sexual offenders based on commonly available criminal history information. The 13 items are displayed in Table 1. Total scores can range from 0-14. Based on an offender’s total score, they are placed in one of five risk categories: low (0 - 2), low-moderate (3, 4), moderate (5, 6), moderate-high (7, 8), and high (9+; Helmus, 2007). Previous research has demonstrated high rater reliability (Langton, Barbaree, Hansen, Harkins, & Peacock, 2007) and moderate to high predictive accuracy (Hanson & Morton-Bourgon, 2007).
