Abstract: This presentation will review research on juvenile placement and community-based alternatives in New York State. The Vera Institute’s Center on Youth Justice has been working with Governor Paterson’s Task Force on Transforming New York State’s Juvenile Justice System to identify strengths and needs in the system, and has conducted a cost-benefit analysis of placement reform work to inform the recommendations of the Task Force. We will highlight the methodology and findings from the cost-benefit analysis, and discuss the recommendations that were informed by the analysis.

Abstract: In recent years sociologists have detailed the dispersion of the United States’ foreign and native born Latinos into areas which have historically had small, and in some cases, nearly nonexistent, Latino populations. This dispersion has altered racial/ethnic relations in some regions, and in others, has effected changes in the political arena. This dispersion is particularly evident in the New York metro area where the Latino populations of inner-ring suburbs and exurban areas of Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley have increased dramatically since 1990. Using data from the American Community Survey and the US Census this study demonstrates the changing profile of Latinos in the New York City metro area. This paper provides an analysis of the differences in nativity status and national origin that exist among Latinos in the NYC metro area. Distinct differences emerge in national origin group which may suggest varied trajectories of assimilation or contexts of reception based on background characteristics. Furthermore, among foreign-born Latinos, length of residence in the United States is related to proximity to New York City such that more-recently arrived immigrants are less dispersed than native-born Latinos or those who have been in the United States for a longer period of time. The consequences of these findings will be discussed in relation to recent developments in literature on new immigrant destinations as well as prior research on the role of residential integration in immigrant assimilation.
