The Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP) Databook is a component of OJJDP’s Statistical Briefing Book found on the OJJDP web site. The initial release of the databook contains more than 1,700 State and national CJRP tables on the demographic, offense, placement status, and facility characteristics of juveniles in residential placements as of the census date of October 29, 1997. Databook users can click their mouse to see their choice of tables. The CJRP takes place biennially in odd-numbered years. The most recent census took place on October 27, 1999. Data in all published table cells is rounded to the nearest multiple of three to protect the privacy and confidentiality of individuals included in the surveys.
