Juvenile Residential Facility Census, 2006: Selected Findings
(NCJ 228128) December 2009
OJJDP National Report Series, Bulletin, 20 page(s)
Collects information about the facilities in which juvenile offenders are held including characteristics such as size, structure, type, ownership, and security arrangements. They also describe the range of services they provide to youth in their care, including education, physical health, mental health, and substance abuse services. In addition, facilities report on the number of deaths of youth in custody during the prior 12 months. Data indicate that the population of juvenile offenders in custody decreased 3 percent from 2004, a trend that may be explained by the decline in juvenile arrests.
