Micro And Macro-Level Assessment Of Juvenile Justice Placement Reform In Ohio: Final Technical Report (NCJ 254494) March 2019
Christopher J. Sullivan, Insun Park, Bryan Holmes
This study of Ohio's juvenile justice initiatives covers several years of implementation; focuses attention on the degree to which placement shifts followed expectations; incorporates a larger number and additional types of covariates in comparisons of recidivism among different placement groups; considers county-level trends and variation in juvenile justice inputs/outputs during the time frame under study; assesses the degree to which the initiatives undertaken in Ohio's juvenile justice systems may have had an unintended impact on crime rates (as feared by some stakeholders); and assesses some financial implications of large-scale juvenile justice reform.
