It was also found that unstructured studies and models were far less accurate in the prediction of recidivism versus studies or models which used empirical data. I have chosen to include this in my article to highlight the fact that there are scientific studies being conducted on recidivism rates. The source utilized will highlight the categories used to determine if an offender will make a repeat offense, and what can be done to reduce these factors. I will also show that unstructured models are not as efficient as empirical data when forecasting whether an individual will repeat offend or

As a consequence, these researchers seem not to have developed many self-report measures of uncertainty avoidance. There is also a clinical literature on Tolerance of Uncertainty (TU) which has been conceived of as a cognitive disposition that confers risk of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Birrell, Meares, Wilkinson & Freeston, 2011). Various self-report measures have been developed which are often validated against measures of anxiety, depression and worry (Carleton, Norton & Asmundson, 2007). TU is associated with worries and negative expectations of the future and is therefore often involved in research of anxiety disorders (Ladouceur et al., 2000). TU is usually measured using the Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale (Freeston et al., 1994), which is made up of 27 items.
