The data presented are from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' (BJS') Survey of Sexual Violence in Juvenile Correctional Facilities for 2007-12 (renamed the Survey of Sexual Victimization in 2013), which has annually collected official records on allegations and substantiated incidents of youth-on-youth and staff-on-youth sexual victimization, based on a survey of correctional administrators in State juvenile systems, juvenile correctional facilities in Indian country, and a sample of locally and privately operated juvenile correctional facilities.
Abstract

Presents jurisdiction- and facility-level counts of allegations and substantiated incidents of nonconsensual sexual acts, abusive sexual contact, staff sexual misconduct, and staff sexual harassment reported by juvenile correctional authorities from 2007 to 2012. Facilities include state juvenile systems, juvenile facilities in Indian country, and sampled locally and privately operated juvenile correctional facilities. These tables accompany Sexual Victimization Reported by Juvenile Correctional Authorities, 2007–12, which provides national estimates and rates of sexual victimization and an in-depth examination of substantiated incidents. Data are from BJS's Survey of Sexual Violence (SSV), which has been conducted annually since 2004.
