Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $800,000)

This award to the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) will advance the National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program's capacity to provide information to the juvenile justice field—turning complex statistical and research data into information the busy justice professional can easily find and put to immediate use. The project team includes several partner organizations to NCJJ: the National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC), the National Juvenile Justice Prosecution Center(NJJPC), the W. Haywood Burns Institute (BI) and the Vera Institute of Justice (Vera). Their positions as OJJDP Smart on Juvenile Justice or key subject area training and technical assistance (TTA) providers give them unique perspectives on the field’s statistical information needs. The program’s overall goal is to provide OJJDP with statistical data and analyses to inform the juvenile justice field on a wide range of issues. The National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program is OJJDP’s means of providing statistical information to the juvenile justice community and to the public. This goal implies two sub-goals: 1) develop current information that supports a wide range of information need, and 2) disseminate information in a range of formats and technical skill levels.
