Summary

The minority RRI for the probation decision following adjudication in delinquency offense cases stayed at or below 1.0 between 1990 and 2010, indicating that there was little racial disparity at this decision point. This general pattern was found in the RRIs for black and AIAN youth. For AHPI youth, the probation decision RRI was also relatively constant and was the only one to stay at or above 1.0 for the period.
