National Juvenile Court Data Archive

logo_ojjdp_newThe National Juvenile Court Data Archive, funded by OJJDP since 1975, provides detailed and accurate information on the activities of the nation’s juvenile courts to juvenile justice professionals, policy makers, researchers, and the public. The project receives automated data on more than 1 million juvenile court cases each year from roughly 2,300 juvenile courts and reorganizes the original data into a common format that supports statistical analyses. The Archive produces the annual Juvenile Court Statistics series of reports and OJJDP Fact Sheets, maintains the juvenile court information on OJJDP’s Statistical Briefing Book web site, responds to hundreds of inquiries annually, and provides technical assistance to improve state and local juvenile court information systems.
