What is the difference between Annual Disposition data sets
and Birth Cohort data sets?

The Archive houses two types of data sets. Annual disposition data files contain case-level records for all referrals disposed by the court in a calendar year. Birth cohort data files are constructed based on the youth's date of birth and contain a record for every referral in a juvenile's official court career.
