OJJDP National Juvenile Court Data Archive


In 1975, OJJDP first funded the National Juvenile Court Data Archive, which collects and analyzes data contributions from juvenile courts across the nation. (The Archive dates back to 1926 under the purview of different federal agencies.) It collects, verifies, preserves, and processes the automated records of cases that U.S. courts with juvenile jurisdiction handle and generates national estimates regarding the handling of delinquency and status offense cases.

OJJDP released the most recent competitive solicitation for the National Juvenile Court Data Archive in fiscal year 2018.
