||Does the offense profile of juveniles held in residential placement vary by State?
||Most States had a greater proportion of juveniles held for person crimes than for property crimes.
* Percent based on a small denominator (fewer than 100 but at least 20 in the denominator).
† Interpret data with caution. In these states, 30% or more of the information for offense was imputed. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information about imputation.
Notes: This information is based on the state where the offense was committed. However, the state of offense is not always reported. Youth for whom state of offense was unknown are included in U.S. totals (2,324 in 2011). These instances are not evenly distributed across states. As such, users should exercise caution when examining state-level trends or comparing states. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information.
U.S. total includes a small number of offenders (5) who committed their offense in a U.S. Territory
but excludes youth in tribal facilities.
To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, state cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three. Detail may not add to total because of rounding. Percentages are based on rounded totals. More information on this rounding rule is available on the EZACJRP Web site.
