Examining relationships among state-level juvenile justice policy changes, youth crime, justice system processing, and juvenile confinement


The Research and Evaluation Center at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice is conducting a data analysis project to identify and analyze state-level variations in juvenile justice policy changes and to test their association with changes in measures of juvenile crime, justice system processing, and confinement.

This project is funded under the OJJDP FY 2017 Field Initiated Research and Evaluation Program, Category 2: Small Studies and Analyses, which supports efforts to build knowledge and innovation in both policy and practice in areas of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention that have been understudied or merit closer attention.
