Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $2,400,000)
This project proposes to advance the National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program by turning complex statistical and research data into information that can be easily accessed and put to immediate use by the juvenile justice field and the public. To accomplish this, the project will maintain the OJJDP Statistical Briefing Book content, including its data analysis tools covering topics related to juvenile population characteristics and risk factors, victimization, offending, and justice system involvement. The project will also prepare publications and disseminate timely and accurate statistical information, through bulletins, web-based data briefs and infographics, and the next edition of the Juvenile Offenders and Victims: National Report, as well as through presentations to national audiences at academic and practitioner conferences. The project will also take advantage of new data, expertise, and technologies, to expand and improve the reach, utility of, and access to the information it produces. This includes, establishing a Visiting Scholar Program and developing and implementing recommendations for enhancing user access and experiences with juvenile justice statistical information on the web and in print publications. Finally, the project will respond to information requests regarding juvenile justice-related statistics from practitioners, policymakers, media, researchers, and the public, and work with federal agencies involved in statistical data collections.
