To determine appropriate funding levels and appropriate policies regarding correctional populations, accurate population projections are vital. Correctional population projections also provide a road map of indicators that influence population growth or reduction. This forum will explore the methodology, techniques, and software used to develop projections for various juvenile justice correctional populations.
LBB believes the precipitous drop in youth prison populations has bottomed out and will remain at current, historic low levels for the foreseeable future. Juvenile arrests continue to drop, but LBB does not expect juvenile probation populations to drop much further.
