5 Ways State Juvenile Correctional Administrators Can Use Data

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


The field of juvenile corrections has experienced numerous improvements over the past few decades. Much has changed as the field has embraced evidence-based practices and focused on the delivery of treatment and other services to improve youth and system outcomes. Juvenile correctional administrators rely on accurate and timely data to ensure facility practices and operations reflect evidence-based practices and are aligned with their rehabilitative missions. For example, knowing criminogenic risk levels and needs of youth can assist with individual treatment planning, while the same data in the aggregate can help plan the range of services available to youth. Knowing the proportion of youth who reoffend or return after release provides administrators with a measurable outcome to assess performance and make improvements.
