May 2020 Data Releases
This May, the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) released one new study, sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). A Micro and Macro-Level Assessment of Juvenile Justice Placement Reform in Ohio, 2008-2015 (ICPSR 37496) evaluates the impact of juvenile justice reform policy initiatives across multiple levels and with multiple stakeholders in mind, following implementation of a series of statewide initiatives designed to reduce reliance on state custody of youth in favor of local alternatives.
Additionally, NACJD released an update to Official Crime Rates of Participants in Trials of the Nurse-Family Partnership, Denver, Elmira, New York, and Memphis, 1977-2005 (ICPSR 36580), sponsored by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). This study examined maternal and youth self-reports of arrests and convictions with official records of crime among participants in three randomized controlled trials of the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) in Denver, Colorado, Elmira, New York, and Memphis, Tennessee.
