  Abstract: This national report provides a baseline of facts for juvenile justice professionals, policymakers, the media, and concerned citizens by providing access to the latest information on juvenile arrests, court cases, juveniles in custody, and other topics of interest. This Bulletin is part of the Juvenile Offenders and Victims National Report and offers a comprehensive statistical overview of the problems of juvenile crime violence and victimization, along with the response of the juvenile justice system. The 2004 Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC) collected data from 3,257 juvenile facilities, of which 2,809 held a total of 94,875 offenders younger than 21 on the census date of October 27, 2004. JRFC is only one component in a multi-tiered effort to describe the youth placed in residential facilities and the facilities themselves. Other components include: the National Juvenile Court Data Archive, which collects information on sanctions that juvenile courts impose; the Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement, which collects information on the demographics and legal attributes of each youth in a juvenile facility on the census date; and the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement, which collected in 2003 a broad range of self-reported information from interviews with individual youth in residential placement.
