A Systemic Approach to Identifying Michigan Counties in Need
Group: Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice
The Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice, Delinquency Prevention Subcommittee’s goal is to provide funding to the communities in the greatest need of juvenile delinquency prevention resources. To identify these communities, the subcommittee selected six risk factor categories related to juvenile delinquency. They are: (1) educational success, (2) economic conditions, (3) involvement in the juvenile justice system, (4) involvement with Child Protective Services, (5) teen pregnancy, and (6) population-related data for minors. From these six categories the subcommittee selected 12 indicators of risk. For each indicator, a data source was identified that provides statistics applicable to the youth population in each county. The subcommittee also selected data sources based on publication date and reliability. Data obtained in raw numbers were analyzed with respect to the youth population to determine a rate per 1,000 youth for each indicator. The counties were then ranked based on the highest rate or percentage. The narrative document below further explains the data.
