NCJJ Updates the Statistical Briefing Book With New Arrest Data Resources
January 23, 2019
Developed for OJJDP by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, the Statistical Briefing Book (SBB) provides timely and reliable statistical answers to the most frequently asked questions about juvenile justice in the U.S. The SBB also provides data analysis and dissemination tools that give users quick and easy access to detailed statistics on a variety of juvenile justice topics.
A new Data Snapshot draws on national arrest data to compare arrests of older juveniles ages 15 to 17 with arrests of young adults 18 to 20 and 21 to 24. OJJDP's Data Snapshot series disseminates current research and statistical information about youth in the juvenile justice system. Each one-page snapshot focuses on a specific topic and highlights policy-relevant findings.
New FAQs have been added to the Law Enforcement and Juvenile Crime section. The new FAQs provide detailed access to national arrest data and support custom annual and trend displays detailed by offense, age, and gender, or offense, race, and age.
