|OJJDP Statistical Briefing Book Offers Data Snapshot on Youth Victims of Violence
May 17, 2016
OJJDP recently introduced a Data Snapshot series on its Statistical Briefing Book to disseminate current research and statistical information about youth in the juvenile justice system. Each one-page Snapshot focuses on a specific topic and highlights policy-relevant findings. The latest Data Snapshot focuses on the characteristics of youth victims of violence and domestic violence using data that the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) collected. The information presented in this Data Snapshot is based on “Easy Access to NIBRS Victims,” one in a series of data analysis and dissemination tools available through the Statistical Briefing Book.
Developed by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, the Statistical Briefing Book offers easy online access to statistics on a variety of juvenile justice topics.
