OJJDP Juvenile Justice Model Data Project


The project partners have collaborated with and obtained feedback from the field on critical information requirements across justice sectors through a variety of methods, including:

  • Systematic review of existing data collection efforts, measurement recommendations, jurisdiction reports, and data policies,
  • In-person and web-based guided discussions with key stakeholders in juvenile justice,
  • In-depth case studies in three jurisdictions (Florida, Oregon, and Pennsylvania), and
  • Pilot testing of project recommendations and a data capacity assessment tool in two jurisdictions (Davidson County, Tennessee and the State of Idaho).

The project will issue recommendations for model data elements and broadly applicable measures and implement a comprehensive dissemination strategy for the final recommendations in 2018.
