Description: This award will support three projects: (1) NATIONAL JUVENILE PROSTITUTION STUDY THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM RESPONSE (Phase 2) - Project Abstract: The National Survey of Criminal Justice System Responses to Juvenile Prostitution is a large national telephone survey of juvenile prostitution cases coming to the attention of law enforcement throughout the criminal justice system. Specifically, this study aims to: 1) provide sound national estimates of the number of juvenile prostitution cases investigated by law enforcement agencies at a single point in time; 2) define categories and subcategories of juvenile prostitution victims and describe case characteristics; and 3) make policy recommendations about juvenile prostitution crimes. (2) A COMPUTERIZED INSTRUMENTATION PACKAGE FOR ASSESSING JUVENILE VICTIMIZATION - Project Abstract: This project will create a computerized version of the Juvenile Victimization Questionnaire and related instruments for self administration by juvenile respondents. The instruments will be validated on samples of juveniles and compared on cost and performance to other modes of administration. (3) DEVELOPING NEW KNOWLEDGE FOR EFFECTIVE CHILDREN'S ADVOCACY CENTERS: EMPLOYING THE NCATRAK DATA SYSTEM FOR CAC RESEARCH - Project Abstract: The proposed research represents an innovative effort to link research with large-scale, standardized case data collection by the National Children┐s Alliance, the membership organization of Children's Advocacy Centers. By engaging many CACs through their normal client data collection process, this study would provide the most representative knowledge about what CACs do, how their programs vary, and what outcomes they lead to. It would also provide the largest data set on multidisciplinary response in the history of child maltreatment research on multidisciplinary response to child abuse, providing a rich source for numerous useful studies. Finally, it would develop effective methods to promote CAC research and program evaluation for many years to come.
