OJJDP National Report Series, Bulletin, 4 page(s)
Sickmund, M.
This Bulletin presents findings from the inaugural 2000 Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC). It focuses on two issues of primary interest to the juvenile justice field: facility crowding and facility-related deaths. JRFC is designed to collect information on such facility characteristics as type, size, structure, security arrangements, and ownership. It also examines the adequacy of bedspace and a range of services provided youth in residential facilities.
