- The CJRP captures information on the number of days since admission for each juvenile in residential placement. These data represent the number of days the juvenile had been in the facility up to the census date (October 23, 2019). Because the data are not based on a release cohort, the complete length of stay cannot be determined.
- After 6 months, 42% of committed person offenders remained in placement.
- Time-in-placement patterns largely overlapped for committed youth held for property, drug, and status offenses.
- The proportion of juveniles remaining in placement at least 180 days was larger for committed status offenders (32%) than for delinquents committed for drug offenses (21%). A smaller proportion of juveniles committed for technical violations (17%) had been in the facility that long.
