CCJTDC Fact Sheet: Calendar Year 2011

According to data from the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, in 2011, 5185 youth were admitted to the JTDC. 4655 of the detained youth were male and 530 were female. 83% of the jailed youth were Black while over 14% were Hispanic/Latino. Only 3% were white. Nearly 60% (58.5%) of the youth were ages 15 and 16. Young men were detained for an average of 23 days and young women for an average of 17 days. It costs $501.93 per day to house a youth at JTDC.

We’ve put together a new 2011 Fact Sheet. You can download it HERE (PDF).

It takes us quite a bit of time to track down these numbers and to publish them here. We would very much like to know if/how you use the information that we present on this site. Please take a minute to let us know if you would like us to continue to offer this information to the public (chiyouthjustice@gmail.com). Thanks.
