Notes: The information in this table is based on the state where the offense was committed. However, the state of offense is not always reported. Male offenders for whom state of offense was unknown are included in U.S. totals (2,184 in 2011). These instances are not evenly distributed across states. As such, users should exercise caution when examining state-level trends or comparing states. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information.

U.S. total includes a small number of male offenders (5) who committed their offense in a U.S. Territory but excludes youth in tribal facilities.

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.

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.
