NACJD releases CJRP and JRFC DataThe National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) is pleased to announce the release of data from the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP) and Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC), a compliment to the CJRP. The CJRP provides a detailed picture of juveniles in custody and asks juvenile residential custody facilities in the United States to describe each youth assigned a bed in the facility on the specified reference date. The JRFC is designed to collect information about the facilities in which juvenile offenders are held. The following nine studies are available:
- CJRP 1997: ICPSR 4673
- CJRP 1999: ICPSR 4674
- CJRP 2001: ICPSR 4670
- CJRP 2003: ICPSR 23480
- CJRP 2006: ICPSR 24300
- JRFC 2000: ICPSR 4672
- JRFC 2002: ICPSR 23520
- JRFC 2004: ICPSR 25282
- JRFC 2006: ICPSR 25981
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) sponsored the original data collection and the archiving activities for the CJRP and JRFC data collections. Access to the data is arranged following a completed and approved Application for Use of the ICPSR Data Enclave. Information about the ICPSR Data Enclave and the application for use can be found under Enclave Data on the ICPSR Web site or downloaded as a Portable Document (PDF) file from the download page associated with the dataset.

Some NACJD data collections are available for online data analysis using the Survey Documentation and Analysis (SDA) system developed and maintained by the Computer-Assisted Survey Methods Program at the University of California, Berkeley. Additional CJRP and JRFC data will be made available for online analysis in March 2012 through the NACJD's Restricted Survey Documentation and Analysis (RSDA) system including concatenated CJRP data, concatenated JRFC data, and data that match the CJRP to the JRFC.
The RSDA system is a version of SDA that automatically applies disclosure risk protections to protect respondent confidentiality by preventing an analysis from being run or by suppressing output if certain analytic criteria are not met. This system allows for the analysis of restricted-use data without access to the microdata. Most statistical features available in SDA will also be available in the RSDA system, with some exceptions. Users interested in accessing these data through the RSDA system must complete a RSDA Data Use Agreement, which will be made available when the RSDA studies are released.
Additional information about national juvenile corrections data collections sponsored by the OJJDP is available from the National Juvenile Corrections Data Resource Guide.
