OJJDP has updated its Statistical Briefing Book with a new Data Snapshot on teen dating violence. The snapshot draws on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System to document the trends and characteristics of exposure to dating violence reported by high school students. The data show the prevalence of physical and sexual dating violence reported by students declined overall between 2013 and 2019.
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.
