The Source for Crime and Justice Data

New CJRP and JRFC Data Now Available!


The National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) is pleased to announce the availability of new data for secondary analysis from the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP) and Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC), a complement to the CJRP. The Offi­ce of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) sponsors the data collection and the archiving activities for these data collections.

The CJRP, conducted biennially since 1997, 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 CJRP collects an individual record on each juvenile held in the facility.

The JRFC, conducted biennially since 2000, collects information on the characteristics of the facilities in the CJRP including size, structure, security arrangements, and ownership.  The JRFC also collects information on the health care, education, substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment provided to youth in these facilities.

The CJRP and JRFC contain sensitive data and access is provided at two levels:  Data Enclave and Restricted Online Analysis (RSDA). Each access level and the corresponding datasets available through them is described below.
