Gene Siegel, Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, 2016

This is the second in a series of articles intended to help jurisdictions engaged in dual status youth (DSY) or other multi-system reform initiatives improve their data-related capabilities, including ways that they can acquire, organize, and use their data to help guide important program planning and implementation decisions. While the first data article focused on “what” a jurisdiction may want to know about its dual status youth, this article focuses on a number of key aspects related to “how” one can best find, organize, and present data to answer those questions.
