The Office of Economic Analysis (OEA) provides objective forecasts of the state’s economy, revenue, population, corrections population, and Youth Authority population to enable the governor, the legislature, state agencies, and the public to achieve their goals. 
The Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) Demand Forecast provides a population forecast of youth committed to the Oregon Youth Authority over the next decade.

OYA's goal is to have zero sexual assaults. Compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) is part of OYA’s continuous effort to keep youth safe while they are in custody.

PREA is a federal law that supports prevention of sexual assault and rape within corrections systems. It applies to all federal and state prisons, jails, police lock-ups, private facilities, and community correctional settings. It includes adult and juvenile, and male and female facilities. 
PREA mandates national data collection efforts, provides funding for program development and research, and leads a national commission to develop standards and accountability measures.

Annual Performance Progress Reports (APPR) use key performance measure data to describe each agency’s progress towards its mission and goals.

​Senate Bill 267 (2004):  Evidence-Based Practices

In 2004 legislation was drafted to mandate the use of evidence-based practices for youths and adults at risk of involvement in the criminal justice and correctional systems. 
The Oregon state Senate Bill 267, which later was enacted into state law (ORS 182.515-525), proposed that state-funded programs use treatment practices shown by research to have an impact on reducing the risk to recidivate and/or decrease the likelihood that persons will be hospitalized for mental health crises. This state mandate applies to the Department of Corrections, Oregon Youth Authority, Department of Human Services, and the Office of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

The Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS) Steering Committee publishes a series of annual county reports prepared by the JJIS Data and Evaluation Committee, the JJIS Business Intelligence Group, and the Oregon Youth Authority's Research and Evaluation Unit. 
The intent of these reports is to aid county juvenile departments in the overall planning, development, and evaluation of programs designed to reduce juvenile crime.​
