Juvenile Residential Facility Census, 2016: Selected Findings

Publication year: 2018  |  Cataloged on: Feb 27, 2019

OJJDP has released "Juvenile Residential Facility Census, 2016: Selected Findings." This bulletin presents findings from OJJDP’s Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC), a biennial survey that collects information about facilities in which youth charged with or adjudicated for law violations are held. Findings from the 2016 census show that the population of justice-involved youth dropped 10 percent from 2014 to 2016, and more of these youth were held in local facilities than were held in state-operated facilities. The data also describe the range of services that facilities provide to youth in their care, with almost all facilities (88 percent) reporting that a portion of residents attended some type of school. The data also indicate that most responding facilities routinely evaluated all residents for substance abuse (74 percent), mental health needs (60 percent), and suicide risk (93 percent).
