Note: To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three. West Virginia was the State where the juvenile committed the offense for which they were being held. However, the state of offense is not always reported. These instances are not evenly distributed across states. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information.  

Note: Committed juveniles include those placed in the facility as part of a court ordered disposition.

Note: The "Hispanic" category includes persons of Latin American or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race. These persons are not included in the other race/ethnicity categories.
