Note: 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. 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.
Note: U.S. total excludes youth in tribal facilities.
Note: To preserve the privacy of youth in residential placement, state level cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three.
Note: The rate is the number of youth in residential placement per 100,000 youth ages 10 through the upper age of original juvenile court jurisdiction in each State.
Note: Committed youth include those placed in the facility as part of a court ordered disposition. Detained youth include those held awaiting a court hearing, adjudication, disposition or placement elsewhere. Diverted youth include those voluntarily admitted to the facility in lieu of adjudication as part of a diversion agreement. Totals include youth for whom placement status was reported as unknown or "other."
