National Publications and Reports

Kids, Families and COVID-19 - This KIDS COUNT policy report examines how households with children are faring during the pandemic. Its findings are primarily based on surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.  

The Latinx Data Gap in the Youth Justice System - This report examines racial and ethnic data at state-level youth justice agencies. It documents inconsistent data categories and reporting practices among Hispanic and Latino youth — a scenario that makes Latino youth less visible within the juvenile justice system.

Sticker Shock:  The Cost of Youth Incarceration -  This brief analyzes the economic costs of youth confinement in the juvenile justice system nationwide and considers its debilitating effects on young people’s present and future well-being. Further, the report presents the case for exploring community-based options for system-involved youth — thus reducing reliance on out-of-home confinement.

Expand the Use of Diversion From the Juvenile Justice System -  This brief presents the research case for significantly expanding the use of diversion in the juvenile justice system. The alternative — arresting young people and formally processing their cases in juvenile court — increases their likelihood of subsequent arrests, school struggles and employment challenges. 

A Toolkit for Centering Racial Equity Within Data Integration - This tool kit, developed by a national workgroup of civic data stakeholders, aims to support data sharing and integration done well. It encourages centering racial equity and community voice within the context of data integration and use — and for the benefit of the public good.

Repairing the Breach, A Brief History of Youth of Color in the Justice System - Lessons learned from our history affect all manner of current policy and practice. This history should lead us to examine how achieving equity affects the rationales for our decisions to arrest, detain, and prosecute.
