† Interpret data with caution. In these states, 30% or more of the information for placement status (committed) was imputed. Visit the EZACJRP methods section for more information about imputation.

Note: U.S. total excludes youth in tribal facilities.

Note: To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, state level cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three.

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

Note: As the District of Columbia is not a state, their commitments are to local not state-operated facilities and thus are not included in this table.

Note: Totals include data not otherwise detailed.
