||How do residential placement rates vary by State?
||There was a broad range of State residential placement rates in 1997 - from 68 to 578 per 100,000 juveniles.
* Rate based on fewer than 10 observations.
Notes: The information in this table 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 (3,401 in 1997). 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 excludes youth in tribal facilities.
The residential placement rate is the number of juvenile offenders in residential placement per 100,000 juveniles age 10 through the upper age of original juvenile court jurisdiction in each state.
Data from Idaho for 1997 and 1999 reflect an undercount of youth in placement as about half of the eligible facilities in the state reported in these years. Users should keep this undercount in mind when looking at change over time.
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. Rates and percentages presented are also based on rounded totals. More information on this rounding rule is available on the EZACJRP Web site.
