What is the national juvenile recidivism rate?
Juvenile Offenders and Victims: 2014 National Report
, a report funded by the
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP)
: "There is no national recidivism rate for juveniles. Each state's juvenile justice system differs in organization, administration, and data capacity. These differences influence how states define, measure, and report recidivism rates. This also makes it challenging to compare recidivism rates across states." In addition, view the report
