Notes: The residential placement rate is the number of female juveniles in residential placement per 100,000 female juveniles age 10 through the upper age of original juvenile jurisdiction in each State. U.S. total excludes youth in tribal facilities but includes 272 female juvenile offenders for whom State of offense was not reported (most of these youth are in private facilities).

To preserve the privacy of the juvenile residents, state cell counts have been rounded to the nearest multiple of three. Rates are based on rounded counts. Detail may not add to total because of rounding.
