What is the national juvenile recidivism rate?
According to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) report, Juvenile Offenders and Victims: 2006 National Report, "there is no national recidivism rate for juveniles. Such a rate would not have much meaning since juvenile justice systems vary so much across states." This OJJDP report does, however, contain a summary of findings from recidivism studies conducted at the state-level.

Also see Measuring Juvenile Recidivism an online interactive resource from the Pew Charitable Trusts' Public Safety Performance Project.

You may also wish to conduct a search of the NCJRS Abstracts Database, which contains a number of reports on recidivism at the state level.
