Puzzanchera, C., Stahl, A. L., Finnegan, T. A., Tierney, N., Snyder, H. N.
Profiles more than 1.7 million delinquency cases handled by the juvenile courts during 1998 and examines trends in case processing since 1989. This OJJDP Report, the 72d in the Juvenile Court Statistics series, analyzes the offenses charged in delinquency cases, demographic characteristics of juveniles involved, sources of referral, and case processing (detention, intake decisions, waiver to criminal court, adjudication, and disposition). The Report also profiles status offense cases disposed between 1989 and 1998. The National Center for Juvenile Justice compiled the Report based on information provided by courts to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive. The Report includes approximately 40 tables and 60 figures and an appendix with county- and State-level case statistics for 1998.
