The 1975 census showed that 2,151 juvenile detention and correctional facilities housed more than 76,000 individuals. There was an increase in facilities administered by government agencies, mainly training schools and group homes. Private facilities served almost exlusively as adjuncts of public ranches or group homes. The rates of juveniles to staff throughout the system was roughly one-to-one. Part-time employees constituted a growing proportion of the work force. The ratio of staff to juveniles was somewhat greater in private facilities. Extensive tabular data is included in the report.
