The biennial Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement provides the nation with a detailedpicture of juveniles in custody-age, race, gender, offenses, adjudication status, and more.Conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census for the Office of Juvenile Justice and DelinquencyPrevention, the census surveys both public and private juvenile residential placement facilitiesin every state.This Bulletin presents the latest available national and state-level data from the census, portrayingthe 134,011 youth held in 2,939 facilities on October 27, 1999. Because the censusdoes not survey adult facilities, the Bulletin draws on other sources for statistics on offendersyounger than 18 who were held in jails and adult prisons. It also examines imposition of the death penalty for crimes committed by offenders when they were younger than 18.Clear, comprehensive, reliable statistical information on juveniles in custody, such as thatpresented in this Bulletin, is an invaluable resource for policymakers and juvenile justice professionals.This information is essential not only for planning and operating juvenile residential facilities but also for understanding and preventing delinquency.
