Profiles more than 1.6 million delinquency cases handled by juvenile courts in 2002 and reviews trends since 1985. This OJJDP Report, the 75th 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 1985 and 2002. The data used in the analyses were contributed to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive by more than 2,000 courts with jurisdiction over 75 percent of the juvenile population in 2002. The Report includes tables, figures, and an appendix with county and state-level case statistics for both 2001 and 2002. Available online only.
