Juveniles in residential placement are defined as those under age 18 who were assigned a bed in a juvenile residential custody facility in the United States as of the last Wednesday in October in a given year.
Rates are computed per 100,000 juveniles ages 10 through the upper age of each state’s juvenile court jurisdiction. The number of children younger than age 10 in residential placement is not large enough to warrant the inclusion of younger age groups in the denominator of rate calculations. States’ upper age limits of original juvenile court jurisdiction up through 2016 are available at https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/structure_process/qa04101.asp.
Data do not include those juveniles in adult facilities or those juveniles held exclusively in drug treatment or mental health facilities.
