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.
