Report Intro/Brief:
"This report examines facility impact on youth sexual victimization and also takes into account critical youth-level predictors. The objectives are to examine the facility-level correlates of youth sexual victimization, identify significant youth characteristics that can predict sexual victimization, and describe the contextual circumstances surrounding youth victimization. This includes analysis of facility attributes that correspond to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. Findings are based on the 2012 National Survey of Youth in Custody and a companion facility survey."
