Progressive data

The Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice (State Advisory Group) supports an Interactive Data feature on its website for exploring Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) Relative Rate Index (RRI) measures across the nine federally required decision points and for individual race and ethnicity categories. Policy Policy Associates developed the application with the ability to select other indicators such as counts, rates, county rate comparisons, gender and age.  Some counties do not provide DMC-RRI data, or provide partial data, and are noted in the online tool. The Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice also supports a web page for downloading underlying DMC data in an Excel format.
