||How do residential placement rates vary by State?
||There was a broad range of State residential placement rates in 2019 - from 19 to 330 per 100,000 youth.
* Rate based on fewer than 10 observations.
† Interpret data with caution. In these states, 30% or more of the information for placement status was imputed. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information about imputation.
Notes: Detained youth include those awaiting adjudication, disposition, or placement elsewhere.
Committed youth include youth held as part of a court ordered disposition.
This information is based on the state where the offense was committed. However, the state of offense is not always reported. Youth for whom state of offense was unknown are included in U.S. totals (1,895 in 2019). 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 youth (4) who committed their offense in a U.S. Territory but excludes youth in tribal facilities.
The residential placement rate is the number of youth in residential placement per 100,000 youth age 10 through the upper age of original juvenile court jurisdiction in each state.
To protect the confidentiality of the youth in residential placement rates presented from CJRP are based on rounded counts. More information on this rounding rule is available on the EZACJRP Web site.
