Drilling Down: Exploring Performance Measures to Improve Juvenile Justice

Resources / Report / Drilling Down: Exploring Performance Measures to Improve Juvenile Justice

This Bulletin uses performance data collected from 10,718 juvenile probation cases closed between 2000 and 2006 by the Allegheny County Juvenile Probation Department located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to demonstrate the utility of juvenile justice outcome data beyond the report card. We have conducted an exploratory analysis of the outcome data from those cases to explore trends, identify outcome characteristics and generally ask some new questions that are raised by the outcomes of closed cases.
