Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection describes the volume of juvenile cases disposed of during calendar year 1983 in courts having jurisdiction over juvenile matters (delinquency and dependency/neglect cases) in the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the territories of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. This collection is part of the oldest continuous source of information on the processing of delinquent and dependent youth done by juvenile courts, a record inaugurated in 1926. It furnishes an index of the general nature and extent of the problems brought before the juvenile courts.
