* Rate based on fewer than 10 observations.

Notes: The residential placement rate is the number of male juveniles in residential placement per 100,000 male juveniles age 10 through the upper age of original juvenile jurisdiction in each State. U.S. total includes youth for whom State of offense was not reported. U.S. total excludes youth in tribal facilities but includes 2,295 male juvenile offenders for whom State of offense was not reported (most of these youth are in private facilities). U.S. total includes a small number of male offenders (1) who committed their offense in a U.S. Territory.

To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, state cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three. Rates are based on rounded counts. Detail may not add to total because of rounding.
