State Juvenile Population

In order to determine the percentage of juveniles in the state being served by tribal law enforcement agencies, the total state juvenile population is needed. Census Bureau population data, accessed via the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Easy Access to Juvenile Populations site, were used to determine state juvenile populations. The Easy Access site provides national, state and county population data by age, sex, race and ethnicity. Data on number of juveniles ages 0 through 17 in each state are extracted from the Easy Access system.
