NCJJ and OJJDP recently introduced a Data Snapshot series to disseminate current research about youth in the juvenile justice system. Each one-page Snapshot focuses on a specific topic (e.g., juveniles in residential placement, characteristics of youth residential placement facilities, youth victims of violence) and highlights policy-relevant findings. This Data Snapshot highlights trends and characteristics of delinquency cases handled in juvenile court in 2016.
