OJJDP FY 13 Division of Innovation and Research Fellowship on Juvenile Justice Data
This program will help OJJDP provide critical data to the field regarding juvenile justice system processing and needs, risk behaviors, victimization, offending, and related issues. The fellow will work with OJJDP to assist federal, state, and local juvenile justice data collection efforts. These important data inform juvenile justice policy and practice at all levels of government and in every sector of the juvenile justice field. The fellowship will provide an opportunity for researchers with experience and expertise in juvenile justice, survey methodology, and statistics to help implement collaborative cross-agency strategies, policies, and programs to enhance and improve data for use by policymakers and practitioners nationwide. This program is authorized by 42 USC §§ 5631-5633; Pub. L. No. 113-6.
