* Rate based on fewer than 10 observations.

Notes: The placement rate is the number of juvenile offenders in residential placement per 100,000 juveniles ages 10 through the upper age of original juvenile court jurisdiction in each State. U.S. total includes 2,567 juvenile offenders in private facilities for whom State of offense was not reported. U.S total does not include juvenile offenders in tribal facilities.

To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, state cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three. Detail may not add to total because of rounding. Rates and percentages presented are also based on rounded totals. More information on this rounding rule is available on the EZACJRP Web site.
