OJJDP recently introduced a Data Snapshot series on its Statistical Briefing Book (SBB) 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 changing nature of facility populations, characteristics, and practices from data that OJJDP's Juvenile Residential Facility Census collected in 2014.
Developed for OJJDP 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.
