The Comeback and Coming-from-Behind States

An Update on Youth Incarceration in the United States

The conclusion of the Comeback States report made a case that additional reductions in youth incarceration were needed beyond those achieved in the 2001-to-2010 period. Reasons given for the need for further reductions included: the high human and taxpayer costs of youth incarceration; the under-utilization of alternatives to incarceration; the continuing widespread incarceration of youth for non-serious offenses; and below-average adoption of incarceration-reducing policies by more than half of the 50 states.
