April 2015

2013 National placement data is now available. The State Profiles and State Comparison tables will be updated to 2013 data in the near future.

With the release of the 2013 Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement data, the populations used to compute rates in Easy Access to the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (EZACJRP) were revised. Specifically, populations for 2010 and 2011 were updated to reflect the most current population estimates. Users who generated rates for these years prior to April 2015 are encouraged to update their State Profiles and State Comparison tables.

In addition, starting in data year 2013, we modified the coding of the “Facility self-classification” variable in the National Crosstabs section to include Residential Treatment Centers. This category exists for data years 2003 through 2013 data year.

October 2013

The populations used to compute rates in Easy Access to the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (EZACJRP) were revised October 30, 2013. Specifically, populations for 2010 and 2011 were updated to reflect the most current population estimates. Users who generated rates from EZACJRP between August and October 2013 are encouraged to update their State Profiles and State Comparison tables.

December 2011

With the release of the 2010 Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement data, counts of youth held in tribal facilities are not included in Easy Access to the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement. As a result, U.S. totals across all years only include data from publicly and privately operated juvenile facilities and, thus, are reduced by the small number of youth in tribal facilities. There have been approximately 150 youth in tribal facilities on average. Visit the Data Revisions section of the Methods page for more information.

May 2011

With the release of the 2007 Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement data, Easy Access to the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (EZACJRP) and the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement Databook have been merged into one data analysis tool. Going forward, the merged application will continue as "Easy Access to Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement," and it will include the ability to perform custom crosstabs along with the pre-defined tabular displays previously available from the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement Databook. Use the tabs labeled "US & State Profiles" and "State Comparisons" to view the data tables previously available from the CJRP Databook.
