Under the National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program, OJJDP will establish a central, primary source to conduct statistical data analyses and disseminate juvenile justice data to the public.

This project will develop current information that supports a wide range of needs and to disseminate information in a range of formats and technical skill levels. The proposed project will continue to address OJJDP's information needs in a cost-efficient manner, taking advantage of existing databases to produce empirical information on a range of topics and disseminating this information to diverse audiences in a variety of formats. The project will:
1. Maintain the Statistical Briefing Book update/expand the Statistical Briefing Book (SBB) and its Easy Access family of data analysis tools,
2. Develop new online data analysis tools (e.g., for OJJDP's Census of Juveniles on Probation),
3. Develop new SBB modules (e.g., for OJJDP's Juvenile Residential Facility Census and probation data collections),
4. Develop user-friendly tutorials/guides to help users navigate the SBB,
5. Prepare publications and promote the project; including conducting original research, producing publications, and promoting the project at conferences,
6. Service information requests;respond to OJJDP and non-OJJDP information requests,
7. Consult with OJJDP on data collection, management, and use; work with OJJDP and its partners through working group meetings and collaborative projects.

This program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants and cooperative agreements for research and evaluation activities to organizations that OJJDP designates.

Since 1990, the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ), the research arm of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), has worked with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to advance the Office’s roles as data collector and disseminator of juvenile justice statistics. The National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program provides OJJDP with a central, primary source of statistical data and analyses that informs the juvenile justice field concerning critical issues. This project has significantly improved the landscape of juvenile justice statistical information available nationwide by creating a data dissemination infrastructure—tools that are indispensable resources for informed policy decision making. This has required NCJJ to develop current information that supports a wide range of needs and to disseminate information in a range of formats and technical skill levels. The proposed project will continue to address OJJDP’s information needs in a cost-efficient manner, taking advantage of existing databases to produce empirical information on a range of topics and disseminating this information to diverse audiences in a variety of formats.

Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law.
