Juvenile Justice National Minimum Data Set

The JJ NMDS is an annual collection of information on young people under juvenile justice supervision in Australia. It contains data on all supervised orders (both community based and detention) relating to young people under juvenile justice supervision. The first report “Juvenile Justice in Australia 2000-2001 to 2003-2004” containing four years data (2000-2004) was released in February 2006. Data includes Indigenous status, age, gender, and agency name. The NMDS covers both community based supervision and detention, and includes data items on the type of supervision, and reason for ending a supervision episode.

Direct access to the JJ NMDS is restricted due to privacy, and requires application and potentially the payment of fees. Selected data is made available through the AIHW Youth Justice data section.
