Minnesota Statewide Drug Court Evaluation

Group: Minnesota Judicial Branch

Description

The evaluation is focused on the aggregation of all drug court participants in the 16 courts included in the evaluation. DWI participants are excluded for several reasons, including differences in outcomes for DWI offenders. Results are reported for all drug court participants in Minnesota, together. Since one aggregate group is used for the drug court participants, a statewide comparison group is used to assess and compare outcomes. This approach is different from approaches used in other statewide evaluations. In other statewide evaluations presumptions are made about the effectiveness of all courts in a state based on the results from a representative sample of courts. The statewide approach chosen in Minnesota includes the entire population of adult drug participants in Minnesota, instead of a sample of drug courts or a sample of participants in those drug courts.
