JUVJUST Data Snapshots

OJJDP has updated its Statistical Briefing Book with a new Data Snapshot on youth victims of suicide and homicide. Drawing on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the data snapshot details the characteristics and trends of youth victims of suicide and homicide in 2020. While the number of youth suicide victims changed little from 2019 to 2020, the number of youth homicide victims increased 47 percent.

Developed for OJJDP by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, the Statistical Briefing Book offers easy online access to statistics on a variety of juvenile justice topics.
