Publication year: 2017  |  Cataloged on: Jul 14, 2017

NCJJ and OJJDP recently introduced a Data Snapshot series to disseminate current research about youth in the juvenile justice system. Each one-page Snapshot focuses on a specific topic (e.g., juveniles in residential placement, characteristics of youth residential placement facilities, youth victims of violence) and highlights policy-relevant findings. This Data Snapshot focuses on the continued decline in the youth residential placement population using data collected by OJJDP's Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP).
