2 page(s)
McCurley, C.
Discusses the burglary caseload handled by juvenile courts between 1989 and 1998. The number of burglary cases handled by juvenile courts declined 7 percent overall between 1989 and 1998, and ranged from a peak of 159,900 (1992) to 125,800 (1998). Trends in the number of burglary cases differed for males and females, with the decade showing a 9-percent decrease for males and a 17-percent increase for females; females accounted for 10 percent of burglary cases that came before juvenile courts in 1998. This Fact Sheet is based on the Report Juvenile Court Statistics 1998, which derives its national estimates from data contributed by nearly 2,100 courts with jurisdiction over 70 percent of the U.S. juvenile population in 1998.
