OJJDP Juvenile Justice Model Data Project


In 2015, OJJDP launched the Juvenile Justice Model Data Project to develop model measures for juvenile justice systems and provide guidance to the field on the data elements and coding categories required to calculate the model measures. OJJDP and its partners are creating the guidance to improve the quality and consistency of juvenile justice data and to increase the appropriate use of data in policy and practice decisions at the local, state, and national levels.
