Spotlight on Youth Homicide Victims

Resources / Report / Spotlight on Youth Homicide Victims

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 youth homicide victims based on data collected by the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports.
