5 Ways Juvenile Court Judges Can Use Data

National council of juvenile and family court judges | National center for juvenile justice


Judges use information every day to inform decisions about individuals or cases, but not all judges apply that same information to making decisions about the practices in their courtroom or jurisdiction. For example, judges use information about an individual youth’s educational status to determine appropriate services for that youth, but may not compile education data for all court-involved youth and look for patterns. This information helps to direct resources and system improvement efforts and to set baselines for evaluating policy or practice changes. Data collected in courtrooms every day can be aggregated and viewed differently to paint a picture of what is happening in that court and community.
