OJJDP Updates National DMC Data to Statistical Briefing Book

July 7, 2015 Briefing Book Logo

The OJJDP Statistical Briefing Book (SBB) has added new features to its National Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) Databook. This application presents the national DMC data for the juvenile justice system and their Relative Rate Index Matrices that quantify levels of racial disparity introduced at various decision points within the system. This update provides data through 2013 and makes available new features, including:

  • DMC tables for combinations of gender and race for juvenile court stages.
  • Tables comparing males to females for juvenile arrest and court stages.

Developed by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, SBB offers easy online access to statistics on a variety of juvenile justice topics.
