The Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS) Steering Committee publishes a series of annual reports prepared by the JJIS Data and Evaluation Committee, the JJIS Reports Team, and the Oregon Youth Authority's Research and Evaluation Unit.
The intent of these reports is to aid in the overall planning, development, and evaluation of programs designed to reduce juvenile crime.
Caution Regarding 2020 Data: The data in the JJIS Annual Reports for 2020 differs significantly from reports from previous years due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. There were 3,833 fewer referrals to County Juvenile Departments in 2020 compared to 2019, a reduction of more than a third. As a result, one should use caution when using 2020 data to make comparisons across years.
