Published: May 26, 2006

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquincy Program (OJJDP) has released the Juvenile Offenders and Victims: 2006 National Report.

According to a statement released by the OJJDP, this report presents a comprehensive, reliable, user-friendly account of juvenile offending, victimization of juveniles, and the justice system’s response to these problems.

The 260-page, full-color national report compiles the latest available statistics from a variety of sources to answer questions frequently asked by juvenile justice professionals, policymakers, the media, and concerned citizens. The authors, Howard Snyder and Melissa Sickmund of the National Center for Juvenile Justice, present the data in tables, graphs, and maps, accompanied by analysis in clear, nontechnical language.

  Readers will find baseline information on juvenile population trends; patterns of juvenile victimization, including homicide, suicide, and maltreatment; the nature and extent of juvenile offending, including data on antisocial behavior and arrest rates; and the structure, procedures, and activities of the juvenile justice system, including law enforcement agencies, courts, and corrections. The report also offers the latest information on topics such as school crime, missing children, youth gangs, racial disparity in the juvenile justice system, reentry, and recidivism.
