Counting youth held in Philadelphia adult jails

"As of 2017-03-26, there are 36 youth in Philadelphia adult jails."

A friend of mine is working to keep kids and teenagers out of adult jails. The prison system shares a census periodically, but the data isn't meant to be easy to work with.

A recent webinar by Katie Patrick reminded me that if you want to change something, you have to start by measuring it. So I wrote a web tool that gathers the census data and displays the number of young people in Philadelphia adult jails. My friend says this will make her work a lot easier.

I'm interested in doing more work along these lines, and can be immediately helpful with regard to storing and retrieving data from a database, as well as putting together REST APIs to access it.
