Publisher(s): National Council on Crime and Delinquency
Under the Microscope is the first report of its kind across the nation to focus specifically on API youth, including data disaggregated by API ethnicity and gender. The research was led by community representatives, with technical assistance from the API Center staff who analyzed existing national and state datasets, and compiled valuable community agency data. This executitive summary highlights some of the major findings and recommendations in each of three areas: education, juvenile justice, and behavioral health.
