Juveniles in public and private juvenile detention,
correctional, and shelter facilities in operation in the United States
on February 1, 1985.
Public and private juvenile facilities in operation in the
United States on February 1, 1985, were included in the census if they
housed three or more residents, if at least 50 percent of the residents
were juveniles, and if accused or adjudicated delinquents and status
offenders represented at least 1 percent of their average daily
population. In California, however, all California Youth Authority
facilities were included in the census. Juvenile facilities operated as
part of adult jails were excluded, as were nonresidential facilities,
facilities exclusively for drug or alcohol abusers or nonoffenders, and
federal juvenile correctional facilities.

these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Standardized missing values.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
